Maltese (European) Citizenship

The citizenship program in Malta legally began mid-2014 and enables our clients to become a national of the European Union (EU).

Most people seeking this program are interested in securing the right to live, work, and study in 31 European countries (28 European Union member countries, 2 European Economic Area countries, and Switzerland).

Citizens also acquire the right to security within the European social and legal system, passports which provide visa-free travel to 168 countries around the world.

The main applicants may include their spouse, unmarried dependents below the age of 27 years, and any dependent parents and grandparents over the age of 55 years who have to be fully dependent on the main applicant.

A pre-requisite to acquiring citizenship under the MIIP is to acquire a Maltese residence card, which also gives holders visa-free travel access to all Schengen area countries. To acquire the needed residence status, you will need to acquire a residential address in Malta, either via a Lease Agreement or Deed of Purchase. Our team will help coordinate this for you.

Following receipt of the residence card, you will need to spend at least 14 days in Malta in order to fulfill certain elements of the citizenship application, as well as to increase your genuine link to the country.
