Malta is an attractive destination for many students due to its affordable cost of living, as well as its peaceful lifestyle and climate. On average the cost of living is 36.7% cheaper compared to the UK, contributing to the growing number of British expats who have made the move to Malta?
Malta’s laidback lifestyle and perm-summer vibe make the country an attractive option for relocation and the booming economy means that finding a job is easier than ever. The country might be small but its GDP grew an average of 2.9% from 2001 to 2016, despite a global downturn during that period.
Relocating to Malta from a non-EU country is less straightforward and requires special permits and authorization. A number of residency opportunities can be accessed depending on your means, whether you have a job in Malta, money to support yourself, or you may have to invest locally.
