Malta and the Coronavirus
On the other hand, Citizenship by Investment programmes in Europe is becoming more popular. Countries such as Malta and Cyprus offer investors membership to the EU, world-class healthcare facilities, plenty of personal freedoms and top educational facilities.
Take Malta, for example. During COVID, Malta has handled the pandemic very well. The Maltese government closed the borders, imposed €3,000 fines for those breaking quarantine rules and closed non-essential businesses. Moreover, they made individuals over the age of 65, pregnant women and individuals with pre-existing conditions place themselves in isolation. Therefore, from the 500,000 population, there have only been 610 cases.
