Wahaat ensures eligibility of the applicant and takes care of the documentation and preparation of all the required documents.
An application for the residency permit is submitted to start the 12 - month residency requirement for citizenship. Your physical presence is required for biometrics.
Post the Malta Police Approval, Initial Background checks followed by Compliance Approval and exhaustive Due Diligence Process, the application is submitted to the Malta Individual Investor Programme Agency (MIIPA) along with payments due. It takes approximately 21 weeks from step 1 to step 3.
After a 120 days review period, MIIP confirms if the documentation submitted is formally in order, subject to further investigative due diligence. Once your due diligence process is satisfied an approval letter is issued by MIIPA. It takes about 39 weeks from step 1 to Step 4.
A formal request is issued whereby you are required to settle the contribution (fees mentioned below) within 20 working days. It takes about 52 weeks to reach this step.
