  • 1

In an effort to stimulate the economy and encourage overseas investment, the Cambodian government unveiled its law on foreign ownership of private units in co-owned buildings in 2018. There are essentially five options for buying properties in the Kingdom of Cambodia:

Option 1: Forming a LTD Company

In order to get 100% ownership now foreigner must register in the name of a LTD Company (Limited company).

Option 2: Getting honorary Cambodian citizenship

A foreign national can obtain honorary Cambodian citizenship if s/he donates a ‘significant’ sum amount of money to the Cambodian government for the purposes of benefiting to the people in Cambodia. Those granted honorary Cambodian citizenship can acquire a 100% right of ownership over property purchased in Cambodia.

Option 3: Buy property with a Cambodian citizen’s name

A foreigner can purchase and register a property in the name of a Cambodian citizen. However, to avoid this individual from selling the property without informing the owner, the foreigner is advised to hold the title deed.

Option 4: Long term Rental

Foreigners can purchase a property as per Option 3 above and then enter into a long-term rental agreement with the Cambodian citizen lasting up to 99 years.

Option 5: Getting married to a Cambodian National

A foreigner married to a Cambodian National can register a property using their spouse’s name on the Title Deed.
