Malta Residency

Malta has been a member of the EU since 2004 and of the Schengen Area since 2007. It enjoys a stable political climate with a low risk of financial instability. The Residence Programme offers great advantages to individuals and families seeking to operate throughout the European Union Schengen Area. The Maltese Government is pro-business, and creating a company in Malta is straightforward. Its legislation and tax system are amongst the most favorable in Europe. Residence extends to spouses, children under 18, children over 18 as long as they are unmarried and non-economically active, as well as parents and grandparents who are primarily dependent on the main applicant. Malta has the lowest violent crime rates in Europe. Combined with a laid-back lifestyle, proximity to the sea, and 300 days of sunshine, it is an extremely attractive location. English is an official language of Malta (alongside Maltese), and is widely spoken. All government forms and documents are produced in English, as well as road signs, restaurant menus, and other important information.
