The Malta Residence Visa Programme (MRVP) grants the right to reside in Malta indefinitely, together with the ability to travel freely within the 26 member-states of the Schengen area.
The Maltese Government has created a business-friendly environment that is thriving and contributing to making the economy one of Europe’s fastest growing. Malta is a forward-looking destination, with an open business-centric commercial community that stands tall as an EU member state, and a proven record of economic success.
Whilst the Malta Residence Visa Programme does not qualify its applicants for any preferential tax schemes, the transparent, fully onshore, yet remarkably competitive tax system is undoubtedly an important factor in attracting investors to Malta. A system which is backed up by over 60 Double Taxation agreements yet allows for rates as low as 5%, indeed adds a great deal of value to any Malta-based operation.
