Malta and Monaco are world renowned locations for their luxury and abundance of high net-worth residents. Increasingly, there are opportunities opened up to investors from other nations, affording them the opportunity to become residents in these locations, both of which come at a large cost. Today we’ll let you know the details about each program.
Malta, an island nation in the Mediterranean Sea, is extremely popular amongst European tourists, as well as increasingly those from further afield. However, the nation is also becoming popular amongst expats looking to relocate their lives to the idyllic climes to be found in Malta.
Malta actually offers citizenship as opposed to residency, an interesting factor to take into account when deciding what you’re looking to obtain from your investment overseas.
Interestingly, Malta also have a number of routes you can choose between,
1. Have disposable income equivalent to €600,000 to invest in Malta if you have been a resident for 36 months for the National Development Fund
2. Have disposable income equivalent to €750,000 to invest in Malta if you have been a resident for 12 months and Have €700,000 to invest in Maltese real estate to be held for 5 years and not sublet during this time
3. Lease a residential property in Malta worth €16,000 per year and donate
€10,000 to an approved organisation
Some of the exciting benefits tied to these investments include visa-free access to 140 nations including the EU, citizenship available for your family and future generations, and excellent healthcare.
Monaco, an independent and sovereign state in the heart of Western Europe, is world renowned for luxury and wealth. It is the home to royals, celebrities and prestigious sporting events, as well as being a UN member state, making the small nation extremely large on the global stage.
More practically speaking from an investor’s point of view, the tax and legal
structures in the nation make it very accommodating for citizens new and old, including no capital gains tax on real estate, something important to remember when we get onto the details of their residency by investment program in a minute.
This program is designed for those with high levels of disposable income, and here is the route you will follow:
