Malta has been rated as one of the safest places to live in because of low crime rate and a stable socioeconomic infrastructure. Its beneficial tax regime, excellent location and high standards of living make it an ideal destination for people seeking permanent residence status through investment in real estate. It is situated at the crossroads of Europe, Africa and Asia and therefore it has become a hub for international business.

The permanent residence permit is granted to applicants by the government for an indefinite period of time but the applicant is required to invest a minimum of €250,000 in government bonds or real estate. The program by which these permits are granted is known as Malta Residence and Visa Program through Investment.
