Malta, an island blessed by a mild climate in the middle of the Mediterranean basin, has much to offer the individual who decides to relocate to its sunny shores. Beyond aesthetics, we find a country steeped in cultural and historical lore, with a thriving economy, an English-speaking population and excellent healthcare and educational standards. All this points to a high quality of life, uncompromised by the relatively low cost of living when compared to other countries in the European Union. One could say that it is perhaps to this effect, that Malta was found to be the home of the happiest people in much of Europe, beating France, Italy and Spain.
The Malta Residency and Visa Programme
Launched in 2015, this programme allows beneficiaries who are third country nationals and their dependents, the right to reside in Malta, and enjoy all the benefits mentioned above and more. Once requirements are met, new and foreign Maltese residents may move freely within the Schengen area and apply for a work permit for themselves and dependants of age. Applicants for this programme must not fall under other schemes, such as the Residents Schemes Regulations, or be of High Net Worth. TACS Malta can offer help with the submission of application for the MRVP, for those who seek permanent residency on the island of Malta.
A Favourable Tax Framework
The tax scene offers a number of favourable incentives geared at attracting high net worth individuals as well as qualified retired persons. It is on this premise that The Malta Global Residence Programme was launched in 2013, granting people who buy high value property and who pay taxes, residence permits. Since then, relocating to Malta has taken on an even more attractive pull. With the right controls in place, a safe environment is ensured for all.
