Malta Individual Investor Programme

  • Malta is one of a growing number of European countries to offer a citizenship by investment programme. Launched in 2014, the Malta Individual Investor Programme (MIIP) is one of the most modern and exclusive citizenship by investment programmes worldwide. The Maltese programme was reformulated to include the requirement for a ‘genuine link’ with the Mediterranean country. It generally suits high net-worth individuals who wish to obtain full EU citizenship.

    The island’s mild climate, rich culture and beautiful scenery have encouraged many investors to seek citizenship in Malta. It also offers clients unrivalled financial security in that it has one of the strongest, most stable economies of the EU and Eurozone.

Benefits of Maltese Citizenship

  • Gaining citizenship by investment to Malta entitles passport holders to a huge range of benefits, including:

  • Visa-free travel to around 180 countries and territories
  • Ability to pass on citizenship to future generations
  • Citizenship for life, with the right to live and work in all 28 EU countries
  • Right to hold dual citizenship
