PROCEDURE FOR OBTAINING CITIZENSHIP

  • 1
    Internal due diligence
    1 day

    Due Diligence is a key step in the application process for citizenship of Malta. It depends on her whether the government agencies of Malta will approve the investor’s application as a candidate for citizenship. Therefore, the lawyer studies the investor’s documents and warns of possible risks.

    Suppose during the verification process there are questions due to which the investor’s application may be rejected. In that case, we offer other citizenship by investment programs.
