Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I live in UK and I am considering applying for a Maltese passport. Do I qualify and what is the process?

Have you applied for one since acquiring your British citizenship or is this your first time?

Dual citizenship had been allowed in limited circumstances from 1989, but only for persons born in Malta who met specific residence criteria. Prior to 21 September 1964, Malta was a British Crown colony and Maltese persons held British nationality.
