Malta Citizenship By Investment 2024

MALTA CITIZENSHIP BY INVESTMENT POLICY

Malta Granting of Citizenship For Exceptional Services By Investment 2024

Malta is arguably the best Plan B destination in the world, in particular if your end goal is obtaining a Malta citizenship by investment. We’re here to help make your Malta CBI application journey fast and seamless in 2024.

It must be noted, at that outset, that Malta does NOT offer a conventional direct Citizenship By Investment program. Instead, the country offers Naturalisation for Exceptional Services by Direct Investment.

This protocol enables qualifying applicants to naturalize in Malta by making a non-refundable government contribution of:

  • €600,000: To obtain Maltese citizenship by investment after 36 months (3 years), OR;
  • €750,000: To obtain Maltese citizenship by investment after 12 months (1 year).

In addition, you will have to either:

A) Buy a residential property worth at least €700,000 in Malta, which must be held for a minimum of five years, OR;

B) Lease a residence with a rental value of €16,000 annually, for a period of 5 years.

Important: If you opt to buy a property, you will not be allowed to sublet or sell this property during these five years. And if you opt to rent a property, you will not be allowed to sublet it either.

And on top of the above, you will have to donate an amount of €10,000 to an organization approved by the Community Malta Agency.

Maltest Passport: Visa-Free Countries 2024

The Maltese passport is one of the most powerful travel documents on the planet. As of 11 November 2023, it affords the bearer visa-free access to over 150 countries, including the USA, Ireland, Switzerland, Singapore, Canada, China, Austria, Japan as well as the 26 other EU (Schengen) member countries.

In addition, Malta’s passport also offers visa-free access to countries like Mexico, Argentina, Turkey, Kazakhstan, South Africa, Serbia, Montenegro, Chile, Uruguay, etc.

Moreover, given that Malta is a full EU member state, it does not face the risk of losing its EU visa-free travel access – whereas all the Caribbean countries offering CBI programs do.
