The Malta Individual Investor Programme (MIIP)

The Individual Investor Programme of the Republic of Malta provides investors and their families the ability to gain Maltese, and therefore European Union (EU) citizenship. Successful applicants gain the rights and freedom to live, work or study in Malta and/or any other European Union member state. n.b Due to the programme meeting its allocated number of applications, the Malta IIP ceased to be available in September 2020. The government has however launched a successor to the Malta IIP: Malta Exceptional Investor Naturalisation (MEIN) Programme
