Maltese citizenship and its mode of acquisition is governed by the Maltese Constitution and the Malta Citizenship Act (Cap.188 of the Laws of Malta) (hereinafter the “Act”). The Act outlines various routes to citizenship each with specific legal requirements. These pathways include Citizenship by descent, by marriage by naturalisation and by investment.

Residency in Malta is regulated by the Immigration Act (Cap.217 of the Laws of Malta) and related legal notices which outline several residency programmes for both EU and Non-EU nationals including the Residency Programme, The Global Residency Programme, The Retirement Programme Rules, the Highly Qualified Individual Rules, the Malta Permanent Residency Programme, the Nomad Residence Permit (Programme) and the Malta Start-Up Residence Programme.
