Relocation Services Malta

Relocation to Malta can occur for many different reasons. DWP Dr Werner & Partner has assisted hundreds of clients with their Relocation to Malta including catering extensively for their families and close relatives.

In some cases, clients would like to retire in Malta, whilst others would be seeking employment opportunities on the island. Added to that is the undeniable fact that the good weather makes Malta the Mediterranean’s Number One Attraction! Moreover, some clients might need just need a change from their current working environment or would simply relish the opportunity of living by the sea.

In this connection, the reasons for a relocation are more often than not professionally and/or personally motivated. Notwithstanding the aforementioned, tax considerations play a big role in any decision. It is no secret that Malta offers very attractive & comprehensive opportunities for individuals who decided to relocate to the island.

This is why for any relocation opportunity that we have assisted clients with, tax advisory and/or legal advice play such a pivotal role. In fact, this is one of our core fields and boutique-level expertise that we offer to all clients willing to take this ‘leap of faith’.

 Relocation services are, generally speaking, a direct result of our clear and bespoke international and/or domestic tax advice. Our team of experts are knowledgeable enough to present a comprehensive legal and structural presentation for your perusal and consideration. This is often ‘tailor-made’ to suit your needs and requirements – commensurate to all legal and tax implications as a result of the proposed relocation. Here at DWP Dr Werner & Partner, we believe that our clients’ welfare must always come first. Your needs and concerns become our immediate priority as we seek to ensure your transition and establishment is undertaken in a smooth and ‘stress-free’ manner. This is why DWP Dr Werner & Partner is everyone’s natural choice when considering any prospective move to sunny Malta.

The Treaty of Maastricht introduced the notion of EU citizenship to be enjoyed automatically by every national of a Member State. It is this EU citizenship that underpins the right of persons to move and reside freely within the territory of the Member States.

Articles 79 and 80 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) defines competences of regular immigration as follows: the EU is competent to lay down the conditions governing entry into and legal residence in a Member State, including for the purposes of family reunification, for third-country nationals. Member States retain the right to determine volumes of admission for people coming from third countries to seek work.

EU/EEA nationals who plan to relocate to Malta for an unlimited period must register with the local authorities after three months at the very latest. Non-EU/EEA nationals intending to stay in Malta for longer than 90 days must apply for a temporary residence permit which either requires proof of financial self- sufficiency or an application for a work visa has to be obtained too. Any citizens staying in Malta beyond three months have to register with the Maltese authorities.

At Dr Werner & Partner we understand the confusion this situation might bring – to which authorities to report to and which application forms are to be submitted, depending on each individual or even his/her family relatives.

Department for Citizenship and Expatriates Affairs (Identity Malta) accepts all relocation applications to reside in Malta (Single Work Permit in case of Non-EU citizens = Third Country Nationals) granting the authorization to reside and take up employment in Malta.

Malta is a politically stable parliamentary republic with a free press and is considered a safe, secure, and welcoming environment for investors to do business. There are no international sanctions in force against Malta and this is attributed to the country’s transparent administration and economy, low levels of official impunity, and small room for arbitrary spending of public funds. Maltese authorities have detected no terrorism financing activity, and Malta’s financial regulators consider the terrorism financing risk to be low.

There is currently some political turmoil on the island which has resulted in a Transparency International Corruption Index of 54/100. The country has been embroiled in a corruption scandal for some time when some high-level ministers where also implicated in the Panama Papers. On the 1st December 2019, under pressure from the 2019 street protests calling for his resignation in relation to the assassination of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, Muscat announced his resignation, and stepped down on 13 January 2020. He has been replaced by the incumbent Prime Minister Dr. Robert Abela who has promised to bring about some sweeping changes including reforming the police force and devoting particular attention to the home affairs ministry to ensure justice is done in its entirety. The political situation should not detract from the fact that the jurisdiction is still extremely safe and welcoming to all foreigners and entrepreneurs.
