Malta Citizenship By Investment

Malta is a beautiful island nation and a member state of the European Union, which is why a Malta passport is ranked amongst the highest in the world. The increasing number of Malta’s Individual Investor Program (MIIP) and Malta citizenship by investment applicants is due to the fact that it is one of the safest countries, offering a unique combination of premium seaside living, ever-growing urban destinations, and a rich cultural heritage. Being an island located strategically between Europe and Africa, Malta has become a freight trans-shipment area, boasting a healthy and growing economy. Investors may opt to purchase property in the Capital of Valetta or any other cities in Malta.
 
Through a three-part investment contributing to the Government of Malta, purchasing (or renting) a property, and investing in Government Bonds, investors and their families can obtain Malta Citizenship-By-Investment in as little as 6 months.
