Applicants must contribute either €600,000 or €750,000 to the Government of Malta depending on the selected length of residency prior to citizenship.
Applicants must also donate €10,000 to a non-government philanthropic organization in Malta.
In addition, applicants must rent or buy a qualifying property in Malta with a purchase price of at least €700,000 or an annual rental expense of €16,000. The property must be kept for at least five years.
