Malta is a safe Country for people and assets.

In times of international insecurity, it may become essential to protect our family members and our assets in a safe and convenient way on an international territory that guarantees the protection of a strict rule of law.

Malta has introduced residency and citizenship programs that encourage the arrival of talented individuals and assets that can usefully contribute to the Maltese economy, whose growing GDP, is still relatively small.

This small Country located a hundred kilometres from the coast of Sicily (Italy) offers a growing economy, a lean bureaucracy and respect for the rule of law.

It is the first system in the world with a comprehensive legislation on blockchain and cryptocurrency and is a primary centre on the fields of asset management, shipping, iGaming and trusts.

Being a member of the European Union, it must ensure compliance with certain legal and economic standards and it must exchange information with Italy and other EU countries.

Being a resident in Malta or a Maltese citizen entails having the possibility to access the right of free movement in the countries belonging to the European Union – even for subjects of non-EU origin.

Therefore, Malta is not only a safe Country for personal and asset protection, but also an excellent centre of interests for developing international business, in particular with the Mediterranean countries, the European Union and the Commonwealth.

There are two residency programs in particular, the Malta Residence and Visa Program (MRVP) and the Malta Global Residence Program, each of which has specific characteristics. Residency programs are also open for citizens of the European Economic Area.

After only twelve months of residence, citizens of countries not part of the European Economic Area can obtain a Maltese passport after fulfilling a series of compliance, security and investment requirements.
