Immigration
A small Island in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, boasting a year round warm climate, scenic views and a kind-hearted friendly nation makes Malta an attractive place for any tourist to visit. It is however also becoming an increasingly popular choice for residency, given the various opportunities, schemes and tax benefits Malta has to offer to both EU and non-EU citizens.

Non-EU nationals wishing to reside in Malta may avail themselves of Uniform Residence Permits issued in terms of Council Regulation 1030/2002 EC for the purpose of employment, self-employment, study, retirement or the Permanent Residence Scheme - a tax residency scheme offered to persons interested in acquiring tax residency in Malta. This scheme offers a beneficial tax treatment in Malta, whereby the foreign sourced income (excluding gains) remitted to the Maltese jurisdiction is taxed at a flat rate of 15%. Due to Malta’s accession to the Schengen Zone in 2007, non-EU nationals may also make use of Malta’s Diplomatic Missions worldwide. As long as one is in possession of a Schengen VISA, one may move freely within Schengen Countries for a qualified period of time without having to apply for a VISA in each Schengen country.
