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 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.
