Malta Individual Investor Programme
The Malta Individual Investor programmes is a EU citizenship programme whereby applicants are required to contribute in a government fund, invest in real estate and government securities. Malta is a country located in the centre of the Mediterranean Sea just south of Italy. It is known to be a safe and stable country as it has one of the lowest crime rates within Europe.
Applicants will initially apply for residency in order to start the one year residency requirement. Residency applications are fast-tracked and processed within three weeks for the Malta Citizenship by Investment programme. A formal citizenship application will also be submitted to Identity Malta at this stage.
The main applicant will have a deadline of 240 days(approximately 8 months) from the day of submitting the citizenship application to make the real estate and government securities investment. Proof of investment documents will need to submitted before the deadline.
The citizenship unit will generally issue all citizenship documents and passports once the unit is satisfied that the applicant has met all the requirements for the programme.
In order to successfully apply for Malta citizenship, an applicant must meet the following requirements:
Applicants should demonstrate a genuine connection with Malta. The applicant should make an effort to visit the island on a regular basis in order to experience the way of life and understand the culture of Maltese citizens. AIM Capital Partners will provide further advice to the applicant on how to meet this requirement.
Applicant should not have been rejected a visa from a country, which has a visa free travel agreement with the Republic of Malta. All visa rejections must be disclosed.
Applicant must be able to make the full investment amount within the timeframe set by the government.
An one year residency requirement will be required in order to successfully apply for citizenship.
