Residency & Citizenship

Malta is an ideal place to take up residence. Besides its pleasant climate, safe environment and hospitable English-speaking population, it offers a range of benefits to individuals seeking to acquire residence on the island, given its advantageous tax regime and competitive cost of living. Various residency programmes are available for both EU and non-EU foreign nationals.

Malta has a reciprocal tax agreement with numerous countries. If you become a permanent resident in Malta you will need to pay 15% tax on the income you bring in to the country, but you will probably not need to pay any tax to your country of origin.

There are two types of Residency options available for moving to Malta, depending on where one is moving from and the reason for the move – the ordinary residence or the permanent residence.
