Malta Citizenship by Investment

Malta Citizenship by Investment

With the ongoing success of Malta’s initial Citizenship-by-Investment Program (MIIP) the recent legislation change has seen the continued success and streamlining of this flagship European Program. With an option to gain Citizenship after either 1 or 3 years of valid residence and differing real estate options based on either purchasing or leasing the required real estate, the Program has continued to go from strength to strength. As the European Union’s only fully incorporated and fully functional CBI Program it gives applicants the ability to become fully-fledged European Union Citizens.
