Introducing Malta

Malta, officially known as the Republic of Malta, is a Southern European island nation in the Mediterranean Sea, lying 80 km south of Italy. Its citizenship program offers great advantages to families: once granted, citizenship is valid for life, and is hereditary for direct family members. Citizens have access to an excellent healthcare system provided free to Maltese citizens, and high quality international education is available for children.

The Maltese Government is pro-business, and creating a company in Malta is straightforward. Its legislation and tax system are amongst the most favourable in Europe.
