While a minimum investment of EUR 800,000 seems like a lot of money, Malta’s programme remains the cheapest route to a European citizenship. It also has an overall cap of 1,500 successful applicants for the entire programme - citizenship is granted only to highly respectable and qualified individuals.
Unlike other European citizenship programmes that were created to stimulate a critical economy, Malta Exceptional Investment Naturalisation (previously known as Malta Individual Investor Programme) was introduced in 2013 to an economy already on the rise. Today, Malta continues to maintain steady economic growth, and its citizens enjoy the highest quality of life Europe has to offer.
