Malta

Malta is an archipelago in the central Mediterranean between Sicily and the North African Coast. The archipelago consists of three islands: Malta, Gozo and Comino. The Malta Permanent Residence Programme (MPRP) launched in 2021 is a PR programme open to non-EU nationals who invest in Malta.

The Programme is regulated by a robust legal framework, and it allows the Main Applicant the right to include in the application, the spouse, children, parents, (including parents in law) and grandparents and to give the opportunity to reside or settle indefinitely in Malta. The residency permit also allows the applicants the right to travel within the twenty-six countries of the Schengen Area without a visa.
