What are the Investment Options for a Malta Golden Visa

The Malta Individual Investor Program (MIIP) offers individuals the opportunity to obtain Maltese citizenship through various qualifying investments. The investment options available under the MIIP include:

Contribution to the National Development and Social Fund (NDSF): The main investment requirement of the MIIP is a non-refundable contribution to the NDSF. The contribution amounts vary depending on the chosen investment pathway, but the minimum contribution starts at ?600,000 for the main applicant.

Real Estate Investment: Applicants are required to invest in qualifying real estate in Malta. The minimum investment for this option is ?700,000, or ?350,000 in case of a property situated in the southern region of Malta or on the island of Gozo. The property must be held for a minimum of five years.

Investment in Government Bonds: Individuals can invest a minimum of ?150,000 in government-approved bonds or stocks and hold them for a minimum of five years.

Investment in Innovative Companies and Funds: Applicants have the option to invest a minimum of ?150,000 in an approved financial instrument, such as a qualifying innovative start-up, a fund, or a special purpose vehicle.

Additionally, there are additional fees and due diligence costs associated with the application process.

It’s important to note that the specific requirements, investment amounts, and terms of the MIIP can be subject to change. It’s recommended to consult with immigration lawyers or specialized advisors who are familiar with the program to get the most accurate and up-to-date information tailored to your situation.
