Visit Schengen countries visa-free with a Malta passport

Maltese citizens can visit the Schengen Zone visa-free. Moreover, they can stay there without any time limit, and they are entitled to study and work there without any additional permits.

Malta citizenship helps the holder in the following ways:

  • move to a safe country with a high standard of living;
  • access modern medicine;
  • work and set up a business in Europe;
  • change tax jurisdiction;
  • educate their children in European universities.

Relocation, setting up a business or education in Europe are the main reasons for obtaining Maltese citizenship.

Other popular travel destinations with a Malta Passport

With a Maltese passport, you can travel visa-free to the United Kingdom, United States, Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore.

UK. Maltese citizens can visit the UK easily and freely. However, after Brexit, citizens of Malta and other EU countries need to carry their passport with them rather than just an ID card.

United States. Maltese citizens can visit the United States and stay there for up to 90 days. To do this, they need to obtain an entry permit through the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA).

The permit is valid for tourism, visits to friends and relatives, meetings with business partners and other short-term visits. However, for permanent work or long-term studies, you have to apply for a visa.

Hong Kong, Singapore and Japan. Holders of a Malta passport can visit Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore and stay there for up to 90 days. This is particularly useful for investors with business interests in Asia.

Maltese citizenship can be obtained through naturalization for exceptional services through direct investment. The minimum investment amount is €690,000, depending on the composition of the family: passports can be obtained by the investor’s spouse, children and parents.

We help investors become global citizens. Answer a few questions and we will calculate the cost of obtaining Maltese citizenship for exceptional service for you.
