Invest in Mexico as a foreigner:

If you're a foreigner looking to invest in Mexico, here's what you need to know:

  • Foreigners can purchase real estate in Mexico through the "Calvo Clause," an agreement in which they agree to be considered as Mexican nationals with respect to the property.

  • There are two exceptions to this agreement: ejido lands and properties located within the Restricted Zone (100 km along the borders and 50 km along the coasts).

  • To buy property in the Restricted Zone, foreigners can either: a) Establish a Mexican company with foreign investment and include a clause in which shareholders consider themselves Mexican nationals. b) Set up a Restricted Zone trust, which allows foreigners to enjoy property rights without direct ownership.

Key aspects of a Restricted Zone trust include:

  • Calvo Clause: Foreigners agree not to invoke the protection of their governments regarding their rights as trustees.

  • Fiduciary ownership: The trust institution retains the property title during the entire trust term.

  • Reporting requirements: Trustees must inform the trust institution about the fulfillment of the trust's purposes

  • Restricted Zone trusts have a maximum duration of 50 years, which can be extended upon request.
