Situated in the heart of the Mediterranean, the islands of Malta and Gozo are ideally located as lifestyle and investment destinations. With a history dating back to the time of the Crusaders this ancient land is steeped in culture with a heritage spanning over 7000 years.
The cosmopolitan, crime free environment, warm friendly people and fantastic weather all year round make Malta a popular tourist destination and a highly sought after country in which to reside. Crystal clear seas offer world class diving, sailing and other water sports while the long stretches of white sandy beaches are a popular draw-card for holiday makers.
English is an official language and the language of business in Malta. Malta is recognised as a reputable international business, financial and maritime centre and has an excellent track record. It has the largest freeport in the Mediterranean and although an on-shore low tax jurisdiction, Malta is not included among the black listed tax havens.
Malta offers a very attractive Residence and Visa programme, ideal for South African nationals keen to invest in an offshore holiday or retirement place with residency and ease of movement across Europe as part of the package.
