Our Services > Property Development Scheme


The government of Mauritius offers the opportunity to live in Mauritius through the acquisition of high standing residential units under the Property Development Scheme (‘PDS’). PDS is a new scheme recently introduced by the Government which replaces the Integrated Resort Scheme (IRS) and Real Estate Scheme (RES).

Under the PDS, residential units are sold to non-residents, Mauritians or members of the Mauritian Diaspora.
