Steps of Malta Citizenship

Step 1

Savory & Partners will pre-screen your passport copy for Government pre-approval to ensure fast processing. A down payment of the professional fees is required to open your application. Savory & Partners will provide assistance and advise with regards to the collection of the required documents in the checklist and complete the government forms.

Step 2

Savory & Partners will guide you to a Maltese property that fully satisfies your requirements and start preparing property purchase/rental documentation required for the Residency application.

Step 3

An application is formally submitted to Identity Malta with the essential supporting documents. The Maltese Government will perform a further due diligence, and on completion, a decision will be made to either grant citizenship, decline citizenship or request further documentation from the applicant. The applicant is assigned a client reference number.
The applicants must travel to Malta to apply for legal residence and acquire a residency card.

Step 4

An approval will be issued in a principal letter by the government if successful. The approval takes approximately four months.

Step 5

Identity Malta requests payment of remaining balance on contribution. The amount must be paid with 25 days of the final approval.

Step 6

Within four months it is necessary to show a copy of your property contract (lease or purchase), confirmation bonds/stocks acquired, and proof that proper medical coverage is in place.
Property purchase funds and taxes are transferred.

Step 7

The applicant and dependents must visit Malta for Oath of Allegiance and provide bio-metrics for the passports. The Maltese Government will issue a Certificate of naturalisation.

Note: The granting of residence permits and citizenship is at the sole discretion of the Maltese Government. Generally, the application is only denied if the due diligence reveals that the applicant has made false statements in the application forms or other submitted documents; has engaged in criminal activities or is under investigation in relation to criminal activities; or has (or is alleged to have been) engaged in or associated with any activity that would bring disrepute to Malta.
