  • 1
    Internal due diligence
    1 day

    Due Diligence is a critical 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.

    Lawyers prepare a list of documents and help the investor to draw them up. They compile a wealth history, translate documents into English, certify copies with a notary, fill out application forms.
