Special Designated Areas in Malta
Special Designated Areas (SDAs) in Malta are luxury complexes and lifestyle developments situated in prime areas which can be acquired without the need for an Acquisition of Immovable Property (AIP) permit. This allows both EU and non-EU nationals the option to purchase properties in these areas which can be leased out (at a tax rate of 15%) without any legal or governmental requirements.
There are a limited number of SDAs across the islands, offering luxurious properties such as apartments, penthouses and villas. Most of which include complementary services, such as security and reception, underground parking facilities, and a communal swimming pool.
