Property Development Scheme (PDS)
The Property Development Scheme (PDS) is one of the approved schemes, which has been designed to facilitate the development and subsequent purchase of luxurious properties by non-citizens in Mauritius.
Projects developed under this scheme provide outstanding luxury residential properties of high international standards together with high quality open spaces, high-class leisure and recreational facilities as well as day-to-day management services.
On acquisition of residential property for a price exceeding USD 375,000, a non-citizen is granted a residence permit for so long as he/she holds the residential property. The spouse and children below the age of 24 are also granted a residence permit.
Non-citizens who have a residence permit under PDS will be exempted from an Occupation or Work permit to invest and work in Mauritius.
