The Mediterranean dream island with the highest number of sunny hours in Europe. It is the birthplace of Aphrodite, the ancient Greek Goddess of Love and Beauty. Cyprus introduced citizenship and residency by investment solutions as well.

Same-sex marriage became legal in September 2017, and its natural, that the Maltese people on the tiny islands guaranteed a tolerant and discrimination-free environment for the LGBT community. Malta, on average, basks in 2,957 hours of sunshine per year. To put that into a European perspective, consider this: Manchester has half of that with just 1,416 hours. Malta offers various residency by investment programs for students, entrepreneurs, professionals, self-sufficient and retired people. There are immigration solutions even without investment, and foreign income is tax exempt if the residents pay the annual flat-tax. And Malta launched the Individual Investor Programme which helps to obtain the citizenship through a combination of contribution and investments.

Applicants must only prove their financial self-sufficiency (life is not cheap in Monaco or Monte Carlo), deposit at least 100,000 euros in a local bank account and rent a flat.
