E&S Group has accumulated a wealth of experience in all matters related to residency in Malta. Our expert team guides clients through all the stages of gaining legal residency through the various applications available through Identity Malta.
Ordinary residence in Malta requires individuals to physically live on the island for a period of six months or more. The transfer of one’s residence from another jurisdiction to Malta is available to both EU/EEA and non-EU/EEA nationals. There is no minimum value property requirement for non-residents seeking to obtain ordinary residence in Malta, unless there is the need for an Acquisition of Immovable Property (AIP) permit, which applies in specific circumstances.
There are several qualifying criteria, which vary according to whether the individual seeking to obtain ordinary residence in Malta is an EU/EEA national or a third country national.
