Why Move to Malta?

May 10th, 2017

Malta is a tiny island state located in the Mediterranean. Every year, people move to Malta for a variety of reasons. Some of them are freelance professionals, while others want to retire in the comparatively warm climate.

Read on to learn more about why people are moving to Malta – maybe you’ll be convinced, too!

Affordability

Malta is one of the most affordable places to live in the EU.
You can buy a pint of beer at an off-the-beaten-path pub for as little as €1.50. Moreover, public transportation is fairly reasonable, too – it costs €0.75 per bus ride. And if you’ve got a bus pass, you won’t spend more than €26 per month on getting around by bus. Utilities tend to be inexpensive in comparison to other EU member states, depending on your immigration status.

The Weather

Malta is known for its fantastic weather – it gets 300 days of sunshine per year! The temperatures are still high even into October (something you won’t find in some parts of Canada). So, don’t forget your hat, and stock up on sunscreen!
In the winter, it’s quite rare for temperatures to fall below 10 degrees Celsius. Just be aware that buildings aren’t as well insulated in Malta as they are in Canada, and there’s no central heating. Wear sweaters, cuddle up and have some hot cocoa.

Safety

Malta is one of the safest places to live in the EU.
The country has 0.3 incidents of violent crime per 1,000 residents. Cyprus is the only EU member with a lower rate of violent crime. In fact, many native Maltese still leave their cars and homes unlocked.

English Is an Official Language

When you move to Malta, you don’t have to worry about surviving in a foreign language. English is one of the official languages of Malta.
Everything you need will be in English – government documents, signs, menus, etc. In addition, 88% of the population speaks English. If you want to learn Maltese (a mixture of Italian and Arabic), go for it! Native Maltese will appreciate it. However, you can still get around quite well only in English.

Laidback Lifestyle, Friendly People

Life in Malta runs at a slower pace. This is great news if you’re looking to escape the rat race (although if you’ve got a Type A personality, Malta might not be the place for you).

The Maltese are some of the friendliest people on Earth. They are helpful, hospitable and warm – even to foreigners. You’ll feel at home right away.
