Malta Citizenship by Investment



Malta citizenship investment passport

The Malta citizenship by investment program has been running since 2014. It rapidly became one of the most popular programs and the most sought-after passport. The Malta Individual Investor Programme is the only second passport scheme whose passport provides visa-free travel to the U.S. Applicants can receive Maltese citizenship after 1.5 years or 3 years depending on the amount donated. Malta is part of the EU and provides its citizens with freedom of movement across Europe. Malta also provides a very attractive tax regime.
