Malta’s Citizenship by Investment route, now known as the Maltese Citizenship by Naturalisation for Exceptional Services by Direct Investment (MEIN), is aimed at ultra-high net worth individuals. Individual investors must make a minimum contribution of €600,000 to the national development fund set up by the government and prove 36 months of residency. Alternatively, there is an expedited route which requires a contribution of €750,000 and evidence of 12 months residency. Investors must also contribute €50,000 per each additional dependent included in their application. In addition to the contribution, investors must also invest a further €700,000 into residential real estate, or enter into a rental agreement at a minimum value of €16,000 p.a which must be maintained for five years. A compulsory donation of €10,000 to a registered philanthropic, cultural, sport, scientific, animal welfare, or artistic non-governmental approved organisation or society is also required.

Malta offers two golden visa programs through investment, one for citizenship (the MEIN) and another for permanent residency (MIRP). This programme grants indefinite residency rights to international investors who invest a minimum €250,000 in Maltese government bonds or equities for a period of 5 years. In addition the investor must make a €30,000 contribution to the State Fund of Malta and purchase or rent a residence on the island. Legal and processing fees amount to €40,000. The programme offers a stable, low risk investment route to gaining a residency visa in an EU Schengen country.
Malta is not the only country in Europe offering a golden visa program leading to a residence permit through real estate investment. Visit the pages below for further options.
