Malta Citizenship by Investment

Malta is one of the hidden gems of the Mediterranean. The sun kissed European hotspot offers plenty of charming seaside towns and historical cities to explore alongside its shimmering blue seas, including its UNESCO-listed capital city Valletta and the medieval stronghold Mdina. Having been a strategic naval base for centuries, history oozes from the country’s every pore. Archaeological wonders and historical sites are scattered across the island, dating back as far as 6,000 years. Having a fascinating past, Malta has become a popular scuba diving destination and boasts a flourishing nightlife scene.Malta enjoys a Mediterranean climate, with mild winters and hot summers. Rainfall usually occurs within the winter months, while the summer months remain largely dry. Among all European capital cities, Valletta enjoys the warmest winters with average temperatures of around 16°C in the daytime.

Malta is one of a handful of European countries offering a citizenship by investment programme that is both highly respected and expedient. Known as the Malta Individual Investor Programme (Malta IIP), the Programme is the first European citizenship by investment programme to be recognized by the European Commission. The programmewas designed for ultra-high net-worth individuals wishing to obtain full rights of citizenship in an EU country.
