Malta Global Residence Programme

Malta has become an increasingly popular destination for expatriates seeking a high standard of living, an attractive tax regime and a safe and stable environment to raise their families. With its picturesque landscapes, mild climate, and rich cultural heritage, Malta offers a unique lifestyle that is highly sought after by those looking for a change of pace.

The Global Residence Programme (GRP) offers non-EU/EEA/ Swiss nationals a special tax status in Malta to benefit from a reduced fixed tax rate of 15% on all foreign generated income that is remitted to Malta. The programme has a straightforward application process for eligible applicants, their families and household staff which can lead to obtain Maltese residency upon a separate application and upon satisfying certain criteria. Conditions of the program includes purchasing or renting a property in Malta, providing proof of a stable and regular source of income and holding valid health insurance.  Beneficiaries of the program are subject to an annual minimum tax of €15,000 covering the first €100,000 of remittances to Malta.
