UKABC’s Introduction to Nexia BT – towards the Malta Citizenship (Individual Investor) programme

UKABC’s Introduction to Nexia BT – towards the Malta Citizenship (Individual Investor) programme

In today’s world of economic and political instability, travel restrictions, and for many other reasons, second citizenship and residency programmes are becoming increasingly popular.

Malta offers those seeking a second citizenship or residence enticing options. As a well-respected, economically and politically stable EU country, Malta is widely regarded as an ideal place to live and an attractive destination for business, investment, tourism and opportunity! An English-speaking environment with good air and sea links, modern communications infrastructure and endowed with hospitable people, Malta also provides excellent education as well as first class health care. It currently boasts the best performing economy in the EU, is part of the Schengen area and offers attractive taxation rates at both corporate and personal levels.

The citizenship (Individual Investor) programme grants applicants and their dependants with the 10th ranked passport allowing visa-free travel to 168 countries as well as the right of establishment in other EU countries and Switzerland. The recently introduced Residence and Visa programme offers beneficiaries an indefinite residence permit which also allows visa-free travel to other EU countries within the Schengen area.

UKABC Promotes Sponsorship Opportunities at Kampala 2017 – GREAT LAKES TRADE SUMMIT – 13-15 July 2017

At a time when globalisation is being contested
 by an organised anti-market movement, the Great Lakes Trade Summit will offer a platform for those dedicated to making a positive case for the alternative: a popular conservatism that works for the individual, not the corporates.

This conference is an initiative of the Alliance of Conservatives and Reformists in Europe (ACRE), who recognise that the European Union’s protectionist trade policies have often stunted the ability of third countries to add value. This needs to change. Following the Brexit vote, the time is ripe for reform, toward a Europe that advances global 
free trade with confidence.
