Benefits of Special Designated Areas

Under Maltese legislation, Special Designated Areas (SDAs) are carefully curated zones where foreign nationals can easily purchase property, often benefiting from incentives such as residency rights. Special Designated Area (SDA) status is awarded to select developments in regions where both EU and non-EU nationals can purchase property with the same entitlements as local citizens. These properties are typically situated in prime, high-demand areas and are considered upscale. The residential options in SDAs are diverse, including studio apartments, penthouses, townhouses and even villas. These areas are designed to offer luxury living experiences including communal amenities like swimming pools and gyms, underground garages, beautifully landscaped gardens exclusive to residents, and private access to commercial zones and shopping centers, such as those at Tigne Point.
Special Designated Areas are ideal for non-Maltese investors, offering the freedom to purchase an unlimited number of properties and the flexibility to use them as desired, including for rental purposes.
Buyers can enjoy a luxurious lifestyle and the peace of mind of owning property in a prestigious and well-regulated location by investing in an SDA.
