NON-EU Nationals

Non-EU nationals can gain ordinary citizenship in Malta if they are in the country for employment, education or vocational training under certain circumstances.  Under the Malta Individual Investor Programme (MIIP) third country nationals may gain naturalisation for themselves and their families if they contribute to the economic development of Malta, giving them the right to establishment in any of the 28 European member states.
