The Malta Golden Visa was launched in August 2015 by virtue of an amendment to the Immigration Act, Cap 217 of the Laws of Malta. Legal Notice 288 of 2015 was enacted with the aim of attracting individuals of impeccable standing and repute to receive a Malta Golden Visa on the basis of a onetime contribution of €30,000 to Malta and an investment of €250,000 for 5 years in Malta Government Bonds. Under this Malta Residency by Investment program, applicants and their qualified dependents enjoy the opportunity to reside, settle and stay indefinitely in Malta and to hold a Schengen card allowing visa-free travel within the Schengen area.
