Moving to Malta: The Maltese Islands

The Island of Malta owes its attractiveness to more than Mediterranean sun and sea. Malta offers a high quality European standard of living and education, a less frantic pace and a famously safe environment with multi-lingual and friendly people. Malta is also a full member of the European Union.

Moving to Malta: Education

The education system in Malta is divided into three main branches: Primary Education, which extends from age five till eleven, Secondary Education which stretches from age eleven till sixteen, and Tertiary Education. Malta has one University, recognised by major foreign Universities. Education is complulsory from age five till sixteen.

Moving to Malta: Health Care

Malta has a very good and solid healthcare system. General practitioners usually deliver private primary care whilst hospitals provide secondary and tertiary care. The Maltese Ministry of Health advises foreign residents to take out private insurance to cover medical fees. Malta also has a Reciprocal Health Agreement with the UK to facilitate access to the national public healthcare service to UK nationals. Such UK passport holders would, subject to certain conditions being satisfied, benefit from the use of our public health system provided they are ordinary residents of Malta and are not covered for healthcare throughout the EU.

Moving to Malta: Buying Property

Malta boasts a variety of prestigious properties that have retained their value even during the financial crisis. Properties such as villas, houses of character and deluxe apartments have proven to be a good and steady investment to most investors seeking a high return on their investment. Malta’s property prices have remained relatively stable guaranteeing a secure investment for anyone seeking to invest in property in Malta
