Why is Malta such a widely sought-after place to live?

One can think of beaches, a comfortable lifestyle, good restaurants and the beautiful sea.

Malta is also a good place to work or to open a business in because of its successful economy and its geographical location. Malta is indeed an excellent business hub.

The Maltese archipelago lies virtually at the heartof the Mediterranean Sea. It is 93 km south of Sicily and 288 km north of Africa.

The archipelago consists of three islands: Malta, Gozo and Comino with a total population of over 400,000.

Obtaining a residence permit and VISA in Malta is fairly straightforward. In general, a person has to be of age and have a stable income or otherwise self-sufficient, and to obtain an address in Malta through lease or purchase of property. (Additional requirements apply).

We can assist the customer to obtain the Residency Certificate, which would be issued upon the applicant satisfying the list of criteria published by the Malta Visa and Residency Agency.

Applicants may apply for a Maltese residence permit on the basis of one of the different types of application.

Once the Residency Certificate is issued, the Beneficiary and his/her dependants have the right to reside, settle or stay in Malta indefinitely. It also grants freedom of movement within the Schengen Area. A Beneficiary may also apply for a work permit.

Malta’s Visa and Residency Programme is available for third country nationals, along with their dependants. It excludes EU/EEA AND Swiss nationals.
