Following the amendments made to the Public Administration Act (Ch. 497), Identity Malta, the Malta Residence & Visa Agency (MRVA) and the Individual Investors Programme (IIP) are now three separate agencies

The proposed changes made, which clearly stipulate the agencies’ roles and duties, are part of a wider reform to enhance operational procedures. In turn, each agency will have its own non-executive chairperson, as well as a board of directors, and will be led by a separate Chief Executive Officer.

The designed structure is intended to promote closer cooperation amongst the three agencies, with Identity Malta chiefly coordinating the policy area. Hence, members of the board of directors will be common for all three, and this will allow for further collaboration on matters concerning citizenship, work permits as well as visa processing. 

The composition of the three agencies is as follows:

Identity Malta 

  • Non-Executive Chairperson Dr. Ian Castaldi Paris 
  • CEO Mr. Anton Sevasta 

Individual Investors Programme (IIP)

  • Non-Executive Chairperson Ms. Frances Mifsud 
  • CEO Mr. Jonathan Cardona 

Malta Residence & Visa Agency (MRVA)

  • Non-Executive Chairperson Ms. Nadette Azzopardi 

CEO Mr. Roderick Cutajar
