Residence as the place where one moves to live on a habitual basis is a concept with different connotations and civil and fiscal implications.


Each country adopts a different system of registration, communication or obtaining residence permits.


Obviously, the concept of residence for European citizens goes hand in hand with the right to free movement of persons in the European area, while in the case of expatriation to a non-EU country or in the case of non-EU citizens who want to enter Europe, the situation becomes more complex and linked to obtaining visas or permits.

In Europe, there is no unitary tax system and direct taxation remains the responsibility of individual countries while there are common regulations for indirect taxation for the free circulation of goods and services.

There are some countries that have adopted preferential regimes for high net worth individuals (HNWIs) or pensioners such as Malta.

Malta in November 2020 introduced a new citizenship program by investment already explained in detail, aimed at non-European citizens who want to obtain a European passport.

In this case, it is a matter of obtaining new citizenship with all the related implications.

It is also possible to obtain a new permanent residence in a European State through investment programs.


So here in MALTA we have the new residence scheme in EUROPE for NON EU: THE PERMANENT RESIDENCE PROGRAM


Malta with Legal Notice 121/2021 has approved a new residency scheme ”Malta Permanent Residence Programme” replacing the previous Malta Residence and Visa Program, aimed at attracting foreign investors from outside Europe to the country, seeking a visa that would allow permanent residence in a European country.

Any person interested in applying to this program is required to do so through an approved registered agent or accredited person


Individuals who are authorized to participate in this program, who are not of Maltese origin, and who intend to remain in Malta for a substantial period of time but do not intend to settle permanently in Malta, will be classified as resident but not domiciled in Malta (NON-DOM).

Such individuals will be taxed on income earned in Malta. They will not be taxed on non-Maltese income not remitted to Malta. Capital gains will not be taxed even if remitted to Malta.
