What is an IRS?

Anahita Mauritius IRS resort

In 2002, the Mauritian government, in collaboration with the Board of Investment (BOI) now called the Economic Development Board (EDB), launched the Integrated Resort Scheme (IRS), a luxury real estate programme developed to attract foreign investment. These integrated estates offer a range residential projects as well as a plethora of high-end services and leisure facilities. Anahita, one of the pioneer IRS inaugurated in2006, perfectly illustrates the lifestyle residents may enjoy with hotel services from the two 5* resorts present amidst the estate, a choice of activities, security and maintenance services as well as high end infrastructures.

Who can purchase a property within an IRS in Mauritius?

Buying an IRS Villa -  Lifestyle

The programme is open to both Mauritians and foreign investors. The IRS therefore allows foreigners to invest in freehold real estate in Mauritius, for a minimum price of US $ 500,000 for a residence (villa or apartment) and a minimum price of US $ 350,000 for serviced land. Upon purchasing an off-plan or existing property, the owner and immediate family are granted a residence permit as soon as the notarial deed is signed. Those who have purchased a serviced land will be given their permit when the construction of their villa is completed. Mauritian investors have also shown interest in IRS villas and are also part of the homeowners’ community at Anahita, which to date encompasses over 250 families!
