Before 2002, foreigners couldn't buy property in Mauritius, the IRS, or Integrated Resort Scheme, is an initiative of the Government of Mauritius, to facilitate acquisition of property by non-citizens.
All IRS are meant for development of luxurious residential units on freehold land of more than 10 hectares, in particular locations, such as golf, marina, etc. Requiring a minimum investment of USD 375,000, a non-citizen is entitled (as well as his spouse and any dependents) to a permanent resident permit as long as he holds the property. IRS schemes offer high class leisure, activities, and commercial amenities. Day to day management services such as security, maintenance, gardening, etc. are also included.
