Before being admitted for Maltese citizenship by investment, you are required to invest at least €150,000 in government approved financial instruments (bonds, stocks, and debentures that benefit the nation). And must commit to keeping the investment for at least five years.

You’ve got questions.
We’ve got answers.
Is the Malta Investment Citizenship Permanent?
“Malta citizenship through investment is granted by a Certificate of Naturalisation, and once you obtain EU citizenship via the Malta Individual Investor Program you will have it forever and can even pass it on to future generations.”
Is There a Language Requirement?
“There are no citizenship tests included in the Malta investment program, and applicants are not required to know Maltese or even English to be accepted into the financial citizenship program.”
Can a Maltese Passport Be Revoked?
“European citizenship granted under the Malta Individual Investor Program can be revoked if an applicant does not follow through with all the requirements of the citizenship by investment programme. To be granted citizenship, applicants commit to retaining a residence in Malta for five years and also keeping their Maltese bonds investment for a minimum of five years. If a person does not comply with these requirements and stops renting an apartment or sells their home in Malta before the five years is up, they can have their citizenship as well as their EU passport taken away.”
If parents acquire citizenship in Malta, are the children also able to apply on this ground?
“Yes, that would be the case. Children growing up and being educated in Malta would also serve as a very good motivation for citizenship.”
