Malta with Merle …..

I am a South African living in Malta

Malta continues to achieve success on the world stage as an attractive destination.  Based on my experience, as a South African/Non-EU living in Malta, I can share my personal experience on getting set up and introduce you to the right people. From my first-hand experiences I can give you tips on purchasing property, lifestyle choices, career, events and most importantly joining a vibrant new community.

Leaving one’s home country, never mind investing in a foreign land is certainly not an easy decision to make, I for one NEVER considered it. I too went through turmoil. If Malta is on your list of possible destinations, I can help guide you.  When I arrived in Malta I was very sceptical and did not expect to feel at home so easily.

The atmosphere here is relaxed and secure with a sense of community, where the people speak English and South Africans fit in very easily. The cost of living is affordable by European standards and the surroundings are beautiful – I can strongly recommend it!  An independent nation and member of the EU for over 10 years – Malta is truly a gateway to Europe. The islands are rich in history with a variety of sights and experiences to be had.

What do you want to know?

Malta  complies with stringent financial regulations which contributes to their strong financial services sector. Malta is strategically located in the Mediterranean with comparatively lower living costs than other European countries. I can help you get connected in property to buy/let, residency, career, events in Malta.


Living in Malta is both liberating and an enjoyable experience.  With my roots in South Africa; born in Johannesburg, educated in Bloemfontein, Krugersdorp, Nelspruit and having lived in Cape Town, I had never contemplated leaving the land of my birth. With over 30 years experience in the hospitality, training and events field both in corporate, small and self-owned business I tend to be quite fussy.

On our search for Plan B, I came to Malta on an exploratory visit ‘kicking and screaming‘. I had no intention of staying. To my surprise I fell in love with Malta. I enjoy the safety and the wonderful people and feel very at home.

Having also gained insight to other Residency Programmes and procedures and having temporarily lived in other countries myself, I can share my experience on the different aspects of making the choices.  Making major decisions for the future including where to live, and how to protect your family and your hardearned money are not easy to make.

Having personally experienced the various aspects of purchasing property and taking up residency, I’m excited to assist others wanting to take this route.


Driven by the buoyant economy, good quality properties are in short supply in Malta, and it is indeed an unique market.


Recognised as offering one of the best residency schemes in Europe.
