To acquire ordinary residence in Malta, individuals have to physically live on the island forat least 183 days in a year.
There is no minimum value property requirement for non-residents seeking to obtain ordinary residence in Malta, unless there is the need for an Acquisition of Immovable Property (AIP) permit, which applies in specific circumstances.
Who can apply?
Ordinary residence is a tax programme applicable to EU/EEA/Swiss Nationals and also Non-EU/EEA/Swiss Nationals.
This is only a taxation scheme, hence it will not automatically provide a person with a Maltese Residence Permit. Obtaining such Residence Permit involves separate procedures.
