Step 1 – Initial Due Diligence and Pre-ApprovalPrimary Applicant must complete the due diligence form and send it back along with scanned copies of your passports for all family members who will be included in the application.
Step 2 – Client Agreement and Residence Application.We will send the Client Agreement and request the initial retainer in the amount to be sent. The EUR 10,000 Government Contribution Deposit, EUR 200 bank fee and an advance payment of EUR 10,000 will be required in order to secure your residency lease. In addition, we will obtain two quotes for your Global Health Coverage and the price will vary depending on your age and overall health status.
A dedicated Relationship Manager will work with you on the residence application. Once we submit your application to Identity Malta (IM), the Government agency overseeing the programme, it typically takes up to 15 business days for the agency to give us an appointment for your visit to Malta in order to capture your biometrics, which is a requirement for the Malta Residence Card.
Step 3 – Secure a Residence in Malta The applicant will need to lease a property for a 12 month period or purchase a property in order to fulfil the residence stage of the application as this will help demonstrate genuine ties to the country. Most clients choose to lease a property at this stage and we are able to fully manage your property to ensure a hassle free experience.
Step 4 – Appointment with Identity Malta Wewill help coordinate your first visit to Malta and take you to your appointment with IM. Typically seven to ten days after your IM visit the residence card will be issued. However, your 12 month residence period begins immediately after your meeting with Identity Malta. Werecommends a minimum of 21 days during the 12 month residence stage but more will certainly help.
Step 5 – Citizenship Application Shortly after your visit with IM we recommend you visit our office and begin working on the actual citizenship application directly with your dedicated Our Relationship Manager (RM). Your RM will also set up an appointment with a local notary to have the required supporting documentation certified. We will also coordinate the necessary passport photos and arrange an appointment with a local doctor to facilitate the requirements of the medical form.
Step 6 – Approval in Principle Upon receiving the letter of Approval in Principle from IM you will need to pay the balance of the contribution owing to the National Development and Social Fund within 20 days. The Government bond purchase will also need to be initiated. Further, the real estate requirement will also need to be fulfilled.
