Is Myanmar land for sale to foreigners?
For the moment, the answer is ‘no’: foreigners cannot buy land in Myanmar.
But there are other ways to hold an interest in land in Myanmar – and the economic benefits that may follow – without legal ownership.
Opportunities to secure a stake in Myanmar land
Foreigners may lease land or property in Myanmar for a lease term of up to 12 months, which may be renewed on expiry. If a foreign company has a permit from the Myanmar Investment Commission, a longer-term lease is possible.
Another option is to invest in Myanmar land development projects, with local partners. Scipio Services works with trusted landowners and developers to offer real estate investment opportunities which allows you to have an interest in a piece of this fast-developing country with huge economic potential.
A proposed condominium law is proceeding through Parliament which will allow foreigners to buy and own condos. However, this law has not yet been passed and the provisions may be subject to change.
Scipio will keep clients informed of any changes in the legal landscape which will allow foreigners to buy land in Myanmar.
