This Programme builds on the success of Malta’s reputation in attracting expatriates seeking an alternative residence base in a warm Mediterranean Island in the European Union. Malta's membership and full implementation of the Schengen Area Treaty offers further attraction on the basis of the ease of travel within the Schengen Area enjoyed by holders of the Malta Global Residence Programme permit. It also offers special tax status by setting the personal tax rate on foreign source income remitted to Malta at 15%.
