Malta’s Individual Investor Programme
With the demand for second citizenship increasing, Malta has launched the Individual Investor Programme (IIP) which has become highly sought after by families around the world. Boasting one of the strongest global passports, a favourable corporate environment, a member of the European Union and Schengen Area; Malta has become a favoured destination for obtaining a second citizenship.
Seed is very familiar with the IIP and its application process. Having facilitated and supported a number of clients obtain their citizenship, we have continued refining our internal processes to make the experience as smooth as possible. We also take a very holistic approach to any application. Drawing on the support of our tax and corporate teams, we have supported families restructure their investment and business structures accordingly.
Malta continues to remain a much sought after jurisdiction and location. Families who have obtained citizenship and live in Malta have found a home away from home in an island that offers good connectivity to all major European cities. Being one of the safest countries, Malta offers the right environment for families to relocate and run their businesses from. Specifically, the IIP provides a number of benefits:
Access to, and free travel within, the Schengen area
Visa free travel to 170+ countries
Access to high standards of education and healthcare
The possibility to reside indefinitely in Malta, in a political and economically stable jurisdiction
The possibility to obtain residence in any EU country as an EU national
The possibility to become tax resident in Malta and benefit from Malta's remittance basis of taxation and access to a long list of Double Tax Treaties
The possibility to work and start a business in Malta
