- Lifetime status
- No limitations on living in Malta
- Residency status for your whole family
Malta Permanent Residence Program started in 2021. MPRP has several distinct features that make it the most attractive choice for claiming permanent European residency. The most important of those features is the fact that the applicant receives their certificate of residency in only 6-8 months.
The New Malta Permanent Residence Program has two paths: full contribution option – €98 000 while renting a property (rental rates of €10 000 and €12 000 in South of Malta and Gozo, and rest of Malta, respectively), plus mandatory donation of €2000 to a Maltese registered NGO; reduced contribution option – €68,000 while purchasing a property (property requirement €300 000 (South of Malta and Gozo) or €350 000 for the rest of Malta), plus mandatory donation of €2000 to a Maltese registered NGO.
Permanent Residency Program Common Conditions
Having a certificate of residency allows its holder and their family members to permanently reside in Malta, as well as visit it at any time. For the first five years, the government requires for the resident to annually confirm their compliance with MPRP’s conditions.
Permanent Maltese residency does not immediately allow its holder to be granted a Maltese citizenship, as there is a separate program for that. To receive a citizenship based on permanent residency, the applicant must live in Malta, pass a language exam, and more (in other words – do a standard citizenship application).
The following members of the investor’s family can receive a Permanent Malta residency together with the main applicant:
- Children under 27 years old
- Children, regardless of age, having a mental or physical disability
- Parents of the main applicant and/or spouse
