Frequently Asked Questions
- Who is eligible to apply?
Third country nationals are eligible, excluding nationals from Afghanistan and North Korea, EEA and Swiss. In the future, applications from other countries may also be excluded in accordance with Government policies.
- Can parents or grand-parents of the Main Applicant apply as dependants?
Yes. A parent or grandparent of the Main Applicant or of his/her spouse, who proves to the satisfaction of the Minister that he/she is not economically active and is principally dependant on the Main Applicant, is eligible as a dependant. If a grandparent is applying as a dependant, proof that shows the link between the grandparent and the Main Applicant/spouse has to be provided (such as a ‘family-tree’ through birth certificates of the Applicant/spouse, the birth certificate of the respective parent, and then the grandparent). An additional fee of €5,000 per parent and grandparent applies.
- In the case of an application for the entire family, are there additional fees?
The €30,000 covers the Main Applicant, Spouse and children who, upon submission of application, are not married and not economically active. For parents and grandparents of the Main Applicant and Spouse, an additional fee of €5,000 applies. A residence card processing fee applies when a residency card is issued or renewed. The fee is of €137.50 per person for the initial 5 years and €27.50 per year for renewals.
- In regard to €100,000 (arising outside Malta) proof of annual income; is the declaration by the employer enough?
Yes, as long as there is enough information on the employer. Evidence, such as salary slips or contract of employment showing the annual salary would suffice.
- How can the Beneficiary and/or dependents apply to set up a business in Malta?
The Beneficiary or spouse can apply, through the competent authorities, to launch a business in Malta as long as they satisfy the prevailing legislation. A dependent can also take this route without losing his/her residency rights.
- Would a minor dependent of an Applicant be entitled to free education whilst residing in Malta? If so, does this apply also to Secondary and Tertiary (i.e. University) education?
No, under the MRVP a minor is not entitled to free education. However, if the Main Applicant acquires a work permit, his/her children would be entitled to free primary and secondary education in state schools.
- Can Applicants work in an EU country under the MRVP?
The MRVP does not grant the Beneficiary any employment rights in the Schengen Area. Therefore, he or she will need to apply for a work permit in the Schengen country according to the provisions of that particular country.
