近日，马耳他移民局对马耳他MPRP项目的Q&A（Version No. 2.1 dated 24th May 2023) 进行了修订。这次修订是马耳他移民局对于递案要求的再次重申和提醒。
One of the eligibility criteria for an adult dependant to be part of an application, it must be proven to the satisfaction of the Agency is that at the time of application he is principally dependent on the main applicant. What does "principally dependant" refer to?The Main Applicant must prove to the Agency's satisfaction that at the time of submission of the application, the adult dependant cannot live a self-sufficient basic independent life without the Main Applicant's support.Adult dependants having an accumulated wealth and/or sufficient income arising from, but not limited to, corporate affiliations through significant shareholding and/or holding legal positions, top roles or any other role in the corporation,financial assets, properties and reasonable economic activity or employment, would not be eligible to apply for the MPRP Programme, even if the main applicant would be contributing further to enable the dependant to lead a better lifestyle.Are cryptocurrencies permissible as financial assets?No, they are not permissible. These should be liquid assets like stocks, bonds, publicly listed/traded shares, funds and bank deposits.虚拟货币不可以作为金融资产；马耳他移民局认可的金融资产为：股票，国债，上市企业持有股份，基金以及银行存款。
If main applicant confirms that he/she holds shares in a company that is publicly listed, are company documents to be submitted with the application pack?If main applicant’s shareholding exceeds 10% of the total shareholding in a publicly listed company, the company documents are required. 如果客户持有上市公司股份10%以上，需要提供公司文件。
We assume that evidence of business ownership is applicable only when the main applicant has declared that he is self-employed. Is this correct?In the case of business ownership, whether in part or in full, evidence is required whatever the declared employment status of the applicant. Which documents must be provided as evidence of business ownership?Originals or Certified true copies of the following documents, or their jurisdictional equivalent, are to be provided for all businesses owned in part or in whole:
In those cases where the official extract from the National company registry of the applicable jurisdiction contains all the relevant details, including incorporation information, list of shareholders, registered and paid capital including dates, and the list of directors and/or all legal persons, this extract can be submitted instead of the above documents.Depending on the jurisdiction, documents can, at times, be titled in a different manner but would still hold jurisdictional equivalence.When this occurs, a declaration is required stipulating such differences in titles.If you are not sure whether the official extract or any of the document satisfies the required criteria, it is suggested that you seek advice from the Agency’s customer care department before submitting the application pack.公司文件包括，公司章程以及工商营业执照。如果没有可以用工商企业注册文件或者公示网站下载文件为主。
- certificate of incorporation.
- memorandum and articles of association.
Is it only Form MPRP1 which requires the signature of the Commissioner for Oaths?Yes, Form MPRP1 is the only form which requires the signature of the Commissioner for Oaths. However, it is also possible to certify Form MPRP1 via a licensed agent who will verify the applicant’s identity via digital software made available by Residency Malta.马耳他移民局重申可以通过其Veriff软件进行线上宣誓。
How can a main applicant make payments?Payments to settle any fees should only be made by direct debit from the bank account as declared by the main applicant in Form MPRP 2 on submission of application.The following payment methods are not accepted by Residency Malta Agency :
Debit/Credit card payments are only accepted for processing fee payments for the issuance or renewal of a residence card to Identity Malta.重申了支付移民申请费用的途径，以MPRP表2申报过的银行账户为唯一支付相关费用的途径。
- Payments via debit/credit cards;
- Payments via virtual payment platforms (e.g. Paypal);
- Payments in cryptocurrency.
Would an individual who has been diagnosed as being a Hep B carrier be eligible to apply?The requirement is that the individual must be completely free from the contagious disease to be eligible for the programme. Hence, as an example, an individual who is clinically fit and does not suffer from any acute or serious pathology but is in Hepatitis B carrier state with low infectivity, he would still be harbouring a contagious condition and for this reason he is medically not eligible to qualify for the Malta Residency programme.For avoidance of doubt, it is strongly suggested that such situations are clarified with the Agency before submitting the application. This is because if at a later stage it results that the Main Applicant is not eligible, this alone would already result in the applicationnot being approved. If the non-eligibility pertains only to a dependant(s) , the dependent(s) will not be approved as part of the application.In all cases, the Agency’s decision as to whether an individual is to be considered as medically eligible or not is final.马耳他移民局重申了，MPRP申请人的身体状况非常重要。比如主申有乙肝即使只是携带者，将会被拒绝。如果附申有乙肝即使只是携带者，附申会被单独拒绝。Does MPRP give beneficiaries any tax benefits?The MPRP doesn’t carry any tax grants and/or incentives. The applicable Maltese statutory tax provisions apply to this status.Nonetheless as a general principle, the basic statutory provisions lay down that Maltese tax for non-Maltese-domiciled individuals is imposed on:i. all chargeable income and capital gains arising in Malta, and on chargeable income arising outside Malta that is remitted to Malta in the case of an individual who is resident in Malta, andii. only chargeable income and capital gains arising in Malta in the case of an individual who is not resident in Malta.An exception to the above principles applies in the case of individuals holding certain rights under the Status of Long-Term Residents (Third Country Nationals) Regulations and the Free Movement of European Union Nationals and their Family Members Order, who would remain chargeable on a worldwide basis. However given that the MPRP does not of itself grant such rights, MPRP holders' basic tax position should be governed by the general principles set out in the preceding paragraph.Of course every individual would need to determine the tax treatment applicable in his/ her specific situation and thus it is strongly recommended that the advice of a tax consultant be sought.对于住在马耳他的居民，马耳他本地的收入需要交税；非马耳他本地收入，如果要以收入的形式转入马耳他，也要酌情收税；对于不住在马耳他的居民，仅对马耳他本地的收入进行征税。
Would a minor dependant of a beneficiary be entitled to free education whilst residing in Malta? If so, does this also apply to secondary and tertiary (i.e. University) education?No, under the MPRP a minor is not entitled to free education. However, if the main applicant or spouse acquires a work permit in Malta, his/her children can apply for an exemption of fees under the applicable single work permit legislation (SL 217.17) and the Education Act.马耳他移民局声明，MPRP 申请人并不直接享受免费公立教育。若申请人实际在马耳他当地居住生活工作，其子女便能获得免费入读的公立学校的权利。（通常马耳他公立学校学费只有几百欧元）免责申明：本文由小编综合整理，内容及图片版权均归原作者所有。若未能找到文章或图片出处，望谅解。如果有侵权行为，请与本账号联系，我们会在第一时间申明原文作者或者将侵权文章或图片删除，谢谢！
