Key Features of the Malta MESDI

The Gold Standard in Security

Malta features some of the highest standards for applicant screening, and requires that all applicants must have a completely clean personal background and no criminal record. Malta has developed a four-tier due diligence system which is considered the most thorough in the world for this kind of scheme, making MESDI the most well-regarded and reputable of its kind in the world.

Maltese regulations further stipulate that a person who has been denied a visa to a country with which Malta has visa-free travel arrangements, and has not subsequently obtained a visa to that country, shall not be entitled to apply under the scheme.

The names of successful applicants will be published annually, along with all other nationalisations granted by the government.
