Foreigners' Property Ownership in Haiti
Foreigners working in Haiti are subject to property restrictions.
Foreigners, excluding foreign corporations, may not own more than one residence in the same district or own real estate without prior authorization from the Ministry of Justice. Land ownership is limited to 1.29 hectares (about 3 acres) in urban areas and 6.45 hectares (about 16 acres) in rural areas.
Additionally, foreigners may not own property or buildings near the border. Foreigners who establish Haitian corporations with corporate offices located in Haiti are not affected by restrictions on ownership of property or buildings adjacent to the border with the Dominican Republic.
