Malta Residency & Visa Programme

Fast Track Permanent Residence in Malta, a Schengen state

Malta enjoys a stable political climate and a bi-partisan political scene that is largely convergent on issues of national and economic importance. Malta and Germany were the only two states in the Euro Zone maintaining economic growth during the financial crisis. Malta has been a member of the EU since 2004 and of the Schengen Area since 2007. Residence obtained under this programme grants a Maltese residence permit which allows its beneficiaries free travel within the Schengen Area. Such residence permit will also grant its beneficiaries the right to reside, settle and stay indefinitely in Malta.The relative EU Residence card is then renewed every 5 years.
