The Malta Residence & Golden Visa Programme (MRVP)

The Malta Residence & Golden Visa Programme is aimed at non-EU nationals who wish to obtain EU residency. With a year on year GDP growth, high standard of living and favourable tax benefits, Malta provides a safe and sound investment for those seeking to relocate to this island nestled in the Mediterranean.

Launched in 2015 the programme allows successful applicants within three to six months of their application, the right to legally reside in Malta and travel freely within the Schengen zone - subject to the continued fulfilment of the investment requirements laid out by the Maltese Government.
