How is citizenship through investment obtained?
When considering the option of applying for citizenship by investment in Malta, an individual must first check that they meet the eligibility for Malta citizenship by investment requirements. One of the main factors of eligibility is that the individual and his family must not originate from a country that has sanctions placed on it. Also the individual considering applying for the citizenship through investment programme must also be eighteen years of age.
If the individual is eligible to apply for citizenship through investment then they will then have to meet several conditions as part of the Malta citizenship by investment process. This will usually start with the individual securing a place in Malta to reside in, which could be temporary rented accommodation or they could choose to purchase property. Once a place to live in has been secured the individual must than file in person an application seeking a residence permit in Malta. Once the residence permit has been issued confirming the Malta residence of the individual and his family it is at this point that the application for citizenship by investment through Malta can be submitted. Identity Malta will on receipt of the application check the citizenship by investment application and issue a confirmation of receipt.
There are a number of conditions to satisfy and it is during this period that the individual will show that they have met the conditions of the Malta Citizenship by Investment programme. Once Identity Malta are comfortable that all conditions related to the citizenship by investment programme have been achieved they will issue a certificate of naturalisation. This certificate is issued 12 months after the date on the initial Malta residence permit. The Malta passport can then be issued on completion of the application process.
