This program, officially known as the Malta Citizenship by Naturalization for Exceptional Services by Direct Investment, allows high-net-worth individuals and their families to obtain Maltese citizenship through significant financial contributions to the country.

    Investment Options

    • Standard Route: Requires a non-refundable donation of €600,000 with a 36-month residency period.

    2. Real Estate Investment

    • Applicants must purchase real estate with a minimum value of €700,000, or enter into a rental agreement with a minimum annual rent of €16,000. The property must be held for at least five years.

    3. Contribution to a Registered NGO

    • Applicants must make a donation of at least €10,000 to a registered non-governmental organization in Malta.

    Processing Time
