Malta Individual Investment Programme (IIP)
Also known as the Malta Citizenship by Investment Programme, the Malta Individual Investor Programme, or IIP, offers an excellent opportunity for investors to contribute to the booming local economy while also receiving the many benefits afforded by Maltese citizenship.
By granting citizenship via naturalisation to qualified and reputable individuals and their dependents who contribute towards the economic development of the islands, the IIP offers them a lasting bond with a stable, neutral and respected EU member state, with no tax consequences and a limited and advantageous tax exposure. Since the individual would also automatically become an EU citizen, then they will also enjoy all the associated benefits such as visa-free travel to more than 160 countries and the ability to work or set up a company in Malta.
To guarantee that only the most highly respectable individuals are offered Maltese citizenship via the IIP, applicants are required to comply with a list of strict eligibility criteria and an efficient application process.
