Step 4

Savory & Partners will guide you to the Maltese property that fully satisfies your requirements and starts preparing property purchase or rent documentation required to be presented for Residency application.

Step 5

The application and the supporting documents are submitted and some of them will be subject to due diligence checks. You’re required to pay EUR 5,500 to cover the costs (this amount is included in the one-time administrative fees)

Step 6

The due diligence will be performed by the Maltese government and on completion, a decision will be made to either grant permanent residency, decline or request further documentation from the applicant before making a decision

Step 7

An approval in a principal letter will be issued by the government if successful.

Step 8

You’re required to pay the remaining part of the administrative fee. Additionally, you will need to invest in bonds as well as purchase or rent property in Malta. Savory & Partners will prepare property rent or purchase documents to complete on the purchase.

Step 9

A trip to Malta is required in order to submit your biometric data. Malta’s permanent residence cards are granted for five years with the possibility of extension.

Step 10

You will be able to sell the bonds in five years. You will no longer be obliged to cover the maintenance costs for your property after five years and if necessary you will be able to terminate your rental contract or sell your Maltese property.

The Residency cards are issued to you via courier once the balance of professional fees has been paid and settled.

* The granting of residence permits is at the sole discretion of the Maltese Government but, 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.
