History & Culture
Bursting with restaurants, sights, beautiful beaches and crystal waters, Malta is a fantastic place to kick off your new life. The people here embrace that famed relaxed, Mediterranean lifestyle. They make the most of those 310 days of sunshine a year!
Not to mention the 7000 years of rich history. Malta is a history buff’s paradise; these islands have one of the highest densities of historical sites in the world. You could spend years exploring the Megalithic Temples of Ggantija, Roman ruins, Medieval castles, WWII shelters and the hundreds of glorious baroque churches. And you’d still have so many ‘new’ things to discover.
Cost of Living
In Malta, a great lifestyle doesn’t have to be expensive. Food, transport, and eating & drinking out are all much more affordable here than most other places in Europe. This means your money goes further while letting the good times roll.
While rent has increased over the past few years thanks to the thriving economy, there are still lots of affordable options and it’s easy to find somewhere within walking distance of the office. With reasonable prices the norm across the island, it’s easier to maintain a high standard of living.
A small island, big business. Malta has transformed into a global hub of industry, trade and commerce. Some of the biggest and best employers in Europe and the world have set up shop here.
The booming financial services sector is buoyed by the Silicon Valletta initiative that connects the country’s start-up scene with the public and investment sectors and brings together CEOs of Malta-based digital businesses.
Making the Move
Malta’s airport, Malta International Airport (MLA) servers as a central hub for cheap flights both to and from Europe. So, you’re always connected to major cities in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. Once you’re there you can start adjusting to your exciting new life.
Some things to know: Malta has some of the most generous holidays in Europe. Right now, there are 14 days of public holidays for all. Taxes are favourable and managed by your employer and the government mandates that employers pay quarterly bonuses to employees. Childcare is affordable and free for children under the age of 3. The high standard of education, free healthcare and good public transport also make Malta an attractive place to live.
