Residency Malta Agency is the Government entity responsible for managing and promoting the Malta Permanent Residence Programme. The programme grants beneficiaries from third countries the right to settle permanently in Malta and travel visa-free across Schengen for 90 out of 180 days. Beneficiaries can enjoy residency in a safe and stable country boasting excellent educational opportunities and economic prosperity. All applications submitted through licensed agents undergo a rigorous due diligence process to ensure that only fit-and-proper individuals are granted residency. The Agency also manages the Nomad Residence Permit – a one year residency permit for digital nomads and remote workers.
