The Nomad Residence Permit enables holders to retain their current employment-based in another country whilst legally residing in Malta. The Permit is open to individuals who can work remotely and independently of location, using telecommunications technologies.
Malta already hosts and welcomes digital nomads from the EU. This community of entrepreneurial ex-pats makes the most of Malta’s island vibes, a nomad lifestyle, business networking opportunities, and cultural experiences. The Nomad Residence Permit is open to individuals from third countries, who would normally (but not necessarily) require a Visa to travel to Malta.
The permit will be issued for one year and can be renewed upon application at the discretion of Residency Malta, as long as the applicant still meets the set eligibility criteria. Applicants who are interested in staying for less than a year will be issued with a National Visa for the duration of their stay.
Nomad Residence Permit holders will not be subject to personal income tax since their employment is already taxed at the origin. Nonetheless, they will be subject to consumption tax like all other residents.
