What are Special Designated Areas?

Malta is addressing its dual role as a destination for individuals seeking to relocate their personal affairs and relocating their business to Malta, has adopted a favourable regime, which gives opportunities to both EU and non-EU nationals, to purchase property in Malta. This is epitomized in the case of Special Designated Areas where no distinction applies between Maltese and non-Maltese citizens.


Special Designated Areas are prime residency areas providing top-end facilities and amenities such as restaurants, supermarkets, spas and marinas within the same area. The conditions of property purchase for non-EU nationals and EU nationals are such that, you are able to purchase a number of properties without the necessity of applying for an AIP permit( acquisition of immovable property), you are also allowed to rent out, so it is a fantastic buy-to-rent or      plan B


These luxury Lifestyle developments are consistently popular both for short-term and permanent residences and as rental investments. Residences situated within these developments were carefully planned to enjoy breath taking sea views, cater for modern-day needs such as private parking and security and often come fully finished and furnished to highest quality and designer standards


The current Special Designated Areas are the following.
