To be eligible for citizenship of Malta under its Citizenship by Investment Programme, there are three options to choose from.


Compulsory background checks are payable to the Government who appoints a preferred due diligence agency. These agencies use various international and local sources such as Interpol, World-Check and other Government agencies. Adeniyi Associates professional fees, official application forms, certification of citizenship and passport, courier & other disbursements are the only other costs associated. A detailed quotation with no hidden costs is provided for the specific case.


For each case, Adeniyi Associates assigns a Document Collection Specialist. The firm provides a customized service that streamlines the application process while requiring the bare minimum from clients. Our job is to make the document collection process as simple as possible for the client, and when required, we obtain the documents without their involvement. Please keep in mind that Adeniyi Associates will draw up a personalized checklist for your application.


The estimated time to receive citizenship approval depends on the due diligence processing time and the specific case.
