Malta Individual Investor Programme (MIIP)
The Malta Individual Investor Programme (‘MIIP’ or ‘IIP’) is Malta’s most desirable immigration programme as it offers numerous benefits to foreign investors and their dependant family members, who are looking for an alternative jurisdiction which offers a gateway to Europe.
Malta boasts an enviable combination of a Mediterranean climate, a thriving economy, long term economic, political and social stability as well as a rich culture. Malta also guarantees an excellent quality of life, a safe environment and some of the best education as well as optimal working infrastructure and services.
The Malta Individual Investor Programme (MIIP) is the only programme recognised by the European Commission for global high net worth individuals to obtain all the benefits of a European nationality, including freedom of movement within the members states of the European Union (EU) and the European Free Trade Association (which include Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Iceland). Upon being granted Maltese citizenship, successful applicants and their dependants shall benefit from the right to work, live and study in any member state of the European Union. A Maltese passport shall also guarantee Visa-free travel to over 160 jurisdictions, including the United States of America (USA) and Canada.
The MIIP is very well-structured and facilitates the granting of Maltese citizenship by naturalisation following a thorough due diligence process conducted on the main applicants and their dependants. In terms of the Programme, applicants are required to invest in the economic development of Malta through monetary contribution made to a fund established by the Maltese Government, with the aim to provide resources for improvements across various sectors. Applicants must also comply with other requirements stipulated within the Programme, including the acquisition or letting of residential property in Malta and an investment in Maltese Government issued shares and bonds.
