The Maltese authorities have launched a new Residence Scheme for Third Country nationals entitled Malta Residence and Visa Programme. Individuals who are not nationals of the EU, EEA (EU+ Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein) or Switzerland can qualify for a Malta Residence Permit which should entitle them to reside in Malta. Successful applicants are given resident certificates by Identity Malta – the national agency entrusted with managing residency permits in Malta.
This certificate entitles the beneficiary and his/her registered dependants to reside, settle or stay indefinitely in Malta, and more importantly, the Residence Card allows the holder to travel freely within the EU Schengen zone.
Identity Malta retains the right to monitor the beneficiary, for the first five years on an annual basis, and every five years thereafter.

Applicants are to authorise a person who is an Identity Malta registered approved agent and, or registered accredited person to act on his/her behalf in respect of all applications, correspondence, submissions, filings, declarations and notifications contemplated under these regulations.
