Program process

The expected timeframe for the application process is 6 months. The first stage of the document collection can differ in length depending on the applicant’s ability to gather the documents. Our team guides this process with samples and best practice advice. The reviewal stage is subject to the respective Government schedule and can be impacted by factors which we, as authorised agents have no control over. Savory and Partners collaborates with the Government throughout the entire process, and we aim to provide the quickest and smoothest experience for the applicant.

Legal basis

Citizens of good standing and their families may be granted full Malta Citizenship under an amendment passed in November 2013 to the Maltese Citizenship Act, Chapter 188 of the Laws of Malta. Applicants are required to contribute to the economic development of Malta, to provide proof of one-year residence in Malta and proof of title of residential property in Malta.
