Malta: Where to stay, how to find apartments


in Malta by @ryan.d.wardell | 5yr  | 2 comments

Hey nomads! I just landed in Malta and Iโ€™m looking to rent a 1br apartment for a month, ideally close to a gym and supermarket.

Am I best sticking around sliema/st julians? Or st paulโ€™s bay? Or in Valletta itself?

Also, I havenโ€™t had much luck finding monthly rentals on airbnb or through simonmamo or other real estate sites - seems to be really tough finding a place for 1-3 months. Any inside tips on how to rent an apartment for a month here?

Valletta is the most charming city on the island of Malta by far IMO. I didnโ€™t care for the St Julians/ Sliema area, but depends what youโ€™re looking for (itโ€™s a big time party area).

I recommend you not miss Gozo if youโ€™re into nature and snorkeling/ diving. I got a great deal thru AirBnB by the seaside. Itโ€™s a bit quiet for a month perhaps, but perfect for my getaway at the time. If you want to be closer to the action Iโ€™d say stay in Valletta.

What's the best thing to do with your phone/ your phone number when travelling?


in Poland by @davda1546 | 5d 4 days ago | 6 comments

Hey, hope everyone is well!

We're leaving in a month to go travelling. Our first destination is still to be confirmed, but will likely be Poland or Slovakia. We will be moving around every month or two to different destinations.

The question we have is: what do people do with phones/ phone numbers when hopping from country to country? Ideally we'd just like one number for the whole trip (even better, the number we already have) wherever we go, rather than getting new SIMs with different numbers.

This is just so it's easier to keep in contact with family/ clients/ etc.

Where do I get good legal advice/support to have a long-term stay?


in Lisbon, Portugal by @mzorrilla | 1mo 1 month ago | 1 comment

Hello, everyone!

My idea is to stay as low as 6 months and as long as a year (maybe, who knows) over Lisbon after doing some analysis from many cities in Europe.

I'm an Argentinian and Chilean (both nationalities) so... no Euro-pass for me (getting my Italian nationality could take 2 years easily). I'm also a remote worker and I have a really good income (I work for a Silicon Valley company) so I can show more than enough resources to stay in the country.

Everything I see online doesn't inspire me much confidence (most sites looks a bit scammy) and this is not a "vacation stay"... I want to be clear my head far away from Argentina right now. If someone has a good website, recommendations, etc I will super appreciate.

Thanks in advance!

Malta- Ordinary Residency


in Malta by @lukasbergner | 3yr 2 years ago | 0 comments

With 2018 right around the corner, the first thing I am going to do is find a new home base. The single most important factor on which I decided where I want to go was tax advantages. Right now, after reading several posts on this forum, itโ€™s probably going to be Malta. I am from the EU which should make the process pretty easy.

I read a few posts on here which answered a lot of questions, but what I am looking for is mainly confirmation on that what I am planning to do works like I think it will.

1. Is a postal address sufficient for gaining and maintaining residency?
I already know that you are supposed to spend more time in Malta than in any other country to gain tax residency. However Iโ€™d rather rent an Airbnb for those months instead of a renting out an apartment for the whole year. Ideally Iโ€™d get a post box to have a permanent mailing address. Would that work?

2. What exactly is foreign sourced income?
So as I understood it, you donโ€™t pay taxes on foreign sourced income which is NOT remitted to a Maltese bank account. My main income comes from websites so the income is sourced from E-Commerce stores, none of them in any form related to Malta. Iโ€™d still work on this while in Malta, although the income is pretty much passive. I am aware that itโ€™s beneficial to pay at least some tax to avoid complications.

Malta Residence Programme min stay time


in Malta by @pavel_maximov | 3yr 3 years ago | 7 comments

Anybody has experience with Malta โ€œResident Programmeโ€ requirements?
Iโ€™m EU national with a UK Ltd, considering taking Malta residence since you pay no personal tax on sources of foreign income there (if you keep your money in non-Maltese banks and rent property in Malta at all times).
Reading the requirements here:


One point is not totally clear to me, on page 12-13 they list the conditions that would make you loose the residence status (point f):
"[if the resident] Stays in any other jurisdiction for more than 183 days in a calendar year.[he/she loses the resident status]"
Does this just mean I canโ€™t stay in any specific country for more than 183 days, or more broadly I canโ€™t stay 183 days outside of Malta?
For example, if I spend 2 months a year in Malta and other 10 months in other countries but not longer than 3 months each, will I still be considered resident of Malta?
Would appreciate any help.

Any coworking spaces in Saint-Paul's Bay, Malta?


in Malta by @kasutan | 5yr 5 years ago | 2 comments

Hello,
I landed yesterday in Saint-Paulโ€™s bay, in Malta, where I have rented a nice flat with a balcony and high speed internet. Looked like a perfect place to workโ€ฆ Except very noisy construction work is being conducted in the building!
Do you have any advice for another place to work from ?
Thanks in advance
