Retiring in Malta or Gozo

Postby swiftbel » Sun 25 Jan 2009 16:38 GMT

Hi there
Can someone please advise me the minimum amount annual income you are required to have in retirement in Malta? I have read different things on different sites and need this clarified. Is it really minimum annual 23,000 euros for a couple?
Regards
Anthea.

Hi

are you EU citizens ?

if so please read

http://www.britishexpat.com/expatforum/ ... hp?t=21114

but in summary, no, it isn't 23,000

Economically self-sufficient persons

An EU national does not necessarily have to work while s/he is living in Malta. However in order to reside here, s/he must be able to support himself/herself and his/her family members accompanying or wishing to join him/her in Malta, without recourse to public funds. The EU national concerned must ... have sufficient resources not to become a burden on the State. .....Currently this should be a capital of at least €14,000 or a weekly income of €84.95 or, in the case of a married couple, a capital of €23,300 or a weekly income of €93.10. (N.B. Pensioners and retired persons fall under this category).

With reference to your very helpful reply to Anthea regarding retirement and pension income etc., we are very much in the same situation. We currently live permanently in Cyprus but want to move to Gozo and were concerned about the apparent savings/income requirements. Your reply to Anthea has been a great help to us. Just another question. As we are in receipt of UK pensions we assume free medical care will be available to us at the general hospitals. Perhaps you would be kind enough to clarify this.

John and Janice.

Hi John and Janice, and welcome to the forum :D

this is covered on the "health and medical" boards
http://www.britishexpat.com/expatforum/ ... .php?f=812

eg
http://www.britishexpat.com/expatforum/ ... hp?t=20689

in summary, do you qualify for an E121 ? if so, you qualify for medical treatment on the same conditions at a Maltese citizen
