My father was born in Malta of Maltese heritage and moved to Canada when he was 12. From what I gather on the internet I am eligable to apply for Maltese citizenship and once granted my husband and daughter can also apply. Is this true?
I have gathered an array of documentation, right down to my grandfather's birth certificate.
Cost: I read that the fees are insane. Literally, insane. I'm not sure if it really costs 100,000 euros or not. Is that for people who don't possess lineage? I understand there would be fees but....really?
Our intention is to retire in Malta. We will be in our early 50's and have a guaranteed pension of a couple thousand a month. We would like to work part time as well.
Also, do I need to reside in Malta to apply? I've read that the process can take 6 months to 2 years. We are Canadian born but are currently posted in the UK for my husband's work.
Any advice or information would be helpful.
