Important Note: Positive changes were proposed at the Mauritius budget meeting on held on the 4th of June 2020. These changes will be updated below accordingly once passed through Parliament. Please contact us for details on these proposed changes.

The Mauritian property market continues to be an enticing option for non-citizens looking for real estate investment that offers permanent residency. Property value is expected to grow by 40% in the next 10 years. Furthermore, Mauritius is extremely tax efficient with no capital gains or inheritance tax.

Property Purchase for Permanent Residency

In Mauritius, a property investment at a minimum of USD500,000 in a government-approved development (Property Development Scheme, Real Estate Scheme, Integrated Resort Scheme, or Smart City) offers the purchaser, their spouse and children under 24 years of age Permanent Residency status. The permanent residency is valid for as long as they own the property.

Permanent residency is an important aspect of the purchase decision, however it is crucial that the real estate investment provides favourable capital growth and rental return prospects.

Apartment Purchase for Investment

Non-citizens may purchase apartments in developments of at least two levels above ground (G+2) with approval from the Economic Development Board. The purchase price of an apartment should not be less than MUR 6 million in order to qualify. The purchaser in this instance does not qualify for a Permanent Residence Permit. Any non-citizen, with or without an occupation permit, residence permit, permanent residence permit, may acquire apartments.
