Acquisition of residential real estate by foreigners in Mauritius

Foreigners holding a permanent residence permit are allowed to purchase a house or apartment for their personal use with only a need to seek prior approval from the Board of Investment.

There are no more restrictions regarding the acquisition of residential real estate by foreigner or foreign entities in projects developed under the Integrated Resort Scheme and Real Estate Scheme.

Mauritius is undoubtedly one of the most attractive countries in the world to live in. An ideal combination of political and economic stability, a clean and safe environment and relatively low tax rates make it the ultimate place of residence. The possibility for foreigners to elect to be tax resident in Mauritius, no inheritance taxes as well as the high degree of privacy and security of tenure make Mauritius the residence of choice for many individuals.
