Does Malta have any appeal procedures for denied citizenship applications?

I know Malta’s citizenship-by-investment program has stringent due-diligence standards, but what if I am denied? Is there any recourse? Do you have any advice for making an application stand out from the rest?

    Malta's Programme is about attracting talent, so the more this is clear as part of the application, the more chance of acceptance. The applicant must of course also satisfy the due-diligence procedures. Also, it is important to note that the contribution and investments are only made after the applicant receives a letter of approval in principal.

    Malta does not have any appeal procedures for denied citizenship applications, hence there is no recourse. Once a decision has been made, it is final. We always advise applicants to put forward all their information/documentation requested by their representative agent and government authorities. This will put applicants in a strong position moving forward.
