Malta Introduces The Individual Investor Programme (hereinafter the ‘Programme’)

Following an amendment to the Maltese Citizenship Act, the Maltese Government has promulgated regulations whereby a new ground for the acquisition of Maltese citizenship by naturalization through investment was introduced.

The Individual Investor Programme (the ‘Programme’) is aimed at foreign individuals and their families who contribute to the economic development of Malta as provided for in the regulations. The Maltese Government will in fact be using the contributions made by successful applicants to build the National Development and Social Fund which will be used to improve the quality of life in Malta through social and capital projects.

The Programme has been endorsed by the European Commission, and in this respect Malta enjoys a unique position within the European Union.

Responsibility for the Programme has been vested in Identity Malta. As an Approved Agent, Dingli & Dingli Law Firm is entitled to file applications under the Programme directly with Identity Malta.
