Malta Nomad Residence Permit

Retain your current employment whilst residing in Malta

Malta Nomad Residence Permit

Malta, the smallest European Union member is an island of stability with a welcoming innovative mind-set and a proven record of economic success. Malta enjoys a stable political climate and a bi-partisan political scene that is largely convergent on issues of national and economic importance. 

The country is ideally located in the centre of the Mediterranean Sea and acts as a perfect bridge between Europe and other continents. Malta has been a member of the European Union since 2004 and of the Schengen Area since 2007. The Malta Nomad Residence Permit is an attractive residence scheme available to non-EU nationals, seeking the opportunity to relocate to Malta whilst retaining the current employment abroad. The Nomad Residence Permit is thus open to individuals who can work remotely and independent of location, using telecommunications technologies. The permit will be issued for up to one year and can be renewed upon application at the discretion of the government agency.
