Can foreigners buy land in Cambodia?

10 March 2021

Technically, no. However, there are a range of ways in which foreigners can control a plot of land or ‘freehold’ property in Cambodia. Sometimes foreigners use a landholding company to purchase the property, this involves setting up a company with 51% Cambodian shareholding. In other circumstances they will use a trust structure or take a long-term lease of up to 50 years. Control of land in Cambodia by foreigners is a complex issue and you should always seek specialist advice.
