Malta: Residence / Citizenship Through Investment

For wealthy non-EU investors looking for a pathway to EU citizenship, there is also the option of investing in Malta. This affords Malta citizenship, which can then provide a pathway to EU citizenship, though Malta is not on the E2 Treaty Investor list. Malta is an EU member, and a part of the EU Schengen zone. English is one of the major languages spoken there. There are two programs for residence in Malta, the Malta Residence and Visa program and the Global Residence Program.

The Global Residence Program is for temporary residence. Application generally takes about three (3) months and applicants can apply on behalf of a spouse or partner, any children under 25 years of age, siblings and parents, if they are financially dependent.
