2 outstanding features of the MPRP

  • Most “economical” investment funds 

In comparison with settlement by investment programs by countries such as America, Australia, and Canada, MPRP turns out to be more cost-saving yet considerably safer. Instead of high-risk projects, investors can opt for real estate  projects in Malta. This project, with a minimum amount of €300.000, will in turn, provide you the Malta permanent residence permit.  

  • Approval first before any amount is payable 

Malta Government implements favorable treatments for foreign investors when investing in its real estate. Specifically, any investment amount is only payable when investor’s application is approved. This would definitely give investors a sense of safety as they do not have to risk their money into an investment which has not been successfully approved.
