The required documents for a Benefactor are the following:

– 3-month Bank Statements for the Benefactor’s account from which the funds for the MRVP application will be remitted (i.e., transferred to Identity Malta);
– Certified true copy of all valid International Passports of the Benefactor (ALL pages);
– Evidence of Current Employment (if applicable);
– Evidence of Business Ownership (for business owned in part or in whole by the Benefactor);
– Sworn declaration that the Benefactor will fund the MA’s MRVP application and all the related financial obligations, and will also provide the MA with stable and regular resources.
– Form MRVP6 and a copy of the bio-metrics data page attached at the end of the Form.
– Police Certificates from the Benefactor’s country of origin, his current residence and any country he/she has lived in for a period of over 6 months in the past 10 years.
