Share This Post

Hey there, I’m Luca Arrigo and I run Nomad Visa Malta. 🌞 So you’re thinking about becoming a digital nomad and Malta has caught your eye? Great choice! Let’s dive right into the ins and outs of the Maltese Digital Nomad Visa, shall we?

A Little History of Digital Nomad Visas

While digital nomads have been around since the 90s, Estonia took the first leap in rolling out a dedicated visa for them. Fast forward to today, over 50 countries have joined the party. Why are these visas so cool? They allow you to work while you travel—something regular tourist visas often frown upon. Plus, they often last for up to a year and some even offer tax benefits. Sweet deal, right?

Why Choose Malta?

First off, Malta is an absolute gem in the Mediterranean, snuggled between Sicily and Tunisia. With English as one of its official languages, stunning landscapes, and rich history, what’s not to love? Plus, we’ve been an EU member since 2004, so you know we’re well-connected. 🌍

All About Malta’s Digital Nomad Visa

In 2021, we introduced the Nomad Residence Permit (NRP). This lets remote workers from third countries live and work here legally. The permit is for a year but you can renew it if you’re loving life in Malta as much as we think you will!

Who Can Apply?

To qualify, you need to be at least 18 and have a job that you can do remotely. You’ll also need an annual income of at least €32,400. You must also have health insurance and a place to stay here.

How to Get Started?

Applying is a breeze—all online! Collect the required documents, like your passport, income proofs, and work contract. Send them over and pay a €300 non-refundable application fee. Once approved, you’ll need to provide proof of accommodation and health insurance. Easy peasy!

The Perks of Being a Digital Nomad in Malta

  1. Tax Benefits: You won’t be subject to Maltese income tax as long as you’re paying taxes elsewhere.
  2. Travel Freedom: With the NRP, you can enjoy visa-free travel throughout the EU Schengen area for short periods.
  3. Vibrant Community: Malta offers great internet connectivity and a buzzing digital nomad scene, not to mention our awesome weather and culture.

Thinking About Longer Stays?

If you’re loving Malta and thinking about making it a long-term thing, we’ve got pathways for that too, like our citizenship by investment program.
