Why Consider Malta Citizenship by Naturalisation?

Are you wondering what Malta citizenship through investment could do for you? Malta, officially known as the Republic of Malta, is a beautiful Southern European island nation in the Mediterranean Sea, lying 95 km south of Italy.

What Can You Expect from Malta Citizenship?

Malta has been a member of the EU since 2004, and of the Schengen Area since 2007. It enjoys a stable political climate with a low risk of financial instability.

The Malta Citizenship-by-Investment Programme offers great advantages to families. Once granted, citizenship is valid for life, and is hereditary for direct family members. Citizens have access to an excellent healthcare system provided free to Maltese citizens, and high-quality international education is available for children. 

The Maltese Government is pro-business and creating a company in Malta is straightforward. Its legislation and tax system are amongst the most favourable in Europe.

Alongside Cyprus, Malta has the lowest violent crime rates in Europe. Combined with a laid-back lifestyle, proximity to the sea and 300 days of sunshine, it is an extremely attractive location.

English is an official language of Malta (alongside Maltese), and is widely spoken. All government forms and documents are produced in English, as well as road signs, restaurant menus, and other important information.
