MALTA'S RESIDENCE AND VISA PROGRAMME (MRVP)

Malta is an ideal place to take up residence. Besides its pleasant climate, safe environment and hospitable English-speaking population, it offers a range of benefits to individuals seeking to acquire Malta residence, given its advantageous tax regime and competitive cost of living.

THE RESIDENCY AND VISA PROGRAMME IN BRIEF

The Malta Residence and Visa Programme was launched by the Maltese government through a Legal Notice published on the 28th of August 2015. The new Regulations were introduced to further draw third-country national investors to Malta.

The Programme offers Non-EU/EEA/Swiss nationals the opportunity to apply for a certificate which entitles the applicant and their registered dependents the right to reside, settle or stay indefinitely in Malta, as well as travel within the Schengen area without the need for applying for a visa.

Once obtained, the certificate issued under these regulations will be monitored annually for the first five years, and every five years thereafter.

The certificate does not entitle the holder to any other rights under the Immigration Regulations apart from residence.
