Malta Residence Programmes

A snap shot of the various Residence Programmes currently accommodated by Malta’s strategic legislative framework.


Blockchain Technology – Regulating the Future

The invention of a revolutionary encoding or cryptographic technology known as ‘blockchain’ is already central to a significant proportion of business-to business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) commerce, legal products and processes. From online purchasing to medical data and prescription management, data sharing of cross-jurisdictional criminal records, to possibly even management of entire countries’ registers and notarisations, this technology has huge potential. But with this potential to develop in as yet undefined ways and into various unregulated areas, one may argue that there is also the risk that ethical boundaries defining our basic rights to ownership, privacy and access to justice may be crossed.


Maltese Lease Arrangements – What you need to know

Malta’s accession to the EU and subsequent establishment as a European domicile of choice across various key industries (including financial services, remote gaming and e-commerce), has directly contributed to the jurisdiction’s increasing popularity as a place of permanent residence and a hub for international business transactions, resulting in the cumulative demand for the taking on lease of both residential and commercial property in Malta.


The Acquisition of Immovable Property in Malta by Non-Residents

Townhouses, farmhouses, penthouses, houses of character, villas, bungalows, maisonettes, country views, sea views. You want it, Malta’s got it.


Acquisition of Immovable Property in Malta

Citizens of all European Union member states, including therefore Maltese Citizens, who have resided in Malta continuously for a minimum period of five years at any time preceding the date of acquisition may freely acquire immovable property without the necessity of obtaining a permit under the Immovable Property (Acquisition by Non-Residents) Act – Chapter 246 of the Laws of Malta (the “AIP Act”).

Citizens of all European Union member states, including therefore Maltese Citizens, who have not resided continuously in Malta for a minimum period of five years may only purchase their primary residence or any immovable property required for their business activities or supply of services without the necessity of obtaining a permit under the AIP Act.
