Independent since 1964, Malta is a member of the EU, the British Commonwealth and Schengen. Maltese passport holders may travel without a visa to 169 countries and territories including the United States, Japan, the UK and the 28 Schengen states and have the right to settle permanently in all EU countries, as well as Switzerland, Norway, Lichtenstein and Iceland.
Malta’s business-friendly tax conditions and regulatory framework, coupled with the access a Maltese citizenship grants to EU markets, make Malta an ideal point of entry into European markets.
