Citizenship by Investment (CBI) in Malta via the Individual Investor Programme

Requirements of the Citizenship by Investment Programme for Individual Investors
Malta is seeking to attract reputable individuals who will be a good influence on the state, have a substantial business network, and who will raise the international profile of Malta.
The MIIP requires that successful applicants make a contribution in the amount of €650,000 to the State, which will be invested in the economic and social well-being of the community.
The individual would also be required to invest in immovable property, where in the case of a purchase, the property should be of a minimum of €350,000 and in the case of a lease, the latter should be for a minimum of €16,000 per year. Such immovable property shall be retained for a period of at least 5 years and may not be let or sublet.
Through the MIIP, the individual would also be required to invest in approved government stocks, bonds, debentures or special purpose vehicles of a minimum amount of €150,000, which investment must be retained for a period of 5 years.
The total investment that such an individual would be required to make for himself in the MIIP is therefore €1.15 million.
In addition to this, an applicant would be required to show proof of residence in Malta for at least twelve months prior to becoming naturalised as a citizen of Malta.
In the case that such individual wishes to extend the scheme to a spouse and/or child/ren, an additional €25,000 per spouse and per child, under the age of 18 years.
The individual would be required to pay an additional €50,000 for any dependant parent aged 55 years and over and the same amount for any child between the ages of 18 to 25 years of age.
Maltese and dual citizenship
Individuals who are granted citizenship in Malta may keep their own as well, thereby having dual citizenship; however, advice has to be sought in the individual’s country of origin to determine the matter further.
