      Process

      Applicants will initially apply for residency in order to start their residency requirement. Residency applications are fast-tracked and processed within three weeks by Komunita Malta.

      Komunita Malta will review the documentation and carry out a due diligence check on all the applicants. The checks will approximately take around 4 months.

      Providing the client is successful during the due diligence phase, the client will be approved in principle and the outstanding payment for the contribution amount will be required. The main applicant may rent a residential property which has a minimum annual rent of €16,000 for a five year period from the date citizenship is acquired. Alternatively, a main applicant has an option to invest €700,000 in Maltese residential real estate should the applicant not wish to rent a property in Malta.

      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.
