Obtain Maltese Permanent Residency By Investment In 2024 Via The Malta Golden Visa Program

Boasting stunning scenery, excellent affordability as well as an English speaking environment, Malta ticks a lot of boxes – both as a Plan B and Plan A destination. (The country is also home to a Citizenship By Investment protocol, but this option is substantially more expensive.)

In addition,  the Malta Golden Visa is one of only three European residency by investment programs offering permanent residency (PR) status right from the start.

Malta (MPRP), Gibraltar (Category 2 HNWI Residency) and Cyprus (Cypriot Golden Visa) are the only other European countries to offer immediate PR by investment.)

In addition, if you opt to rent a property, the Malta Golden Visa will cost you only around €150,000, making it the most affordable program of its kind in the EU.
