Non-Saudis Can Now Invest In Makkah and Madinah’s Real Estate Markets


Up until now investments to the real estate markets of the Two Holy Cities were limited to Saudis but now the doors have been thrown open for non-Saudis too as per a statement by the Capital Markets Authority.

This is amazing news for those who’ve always wanted to invest in the ever-lucrative real estate markets of Makkah and Madinah.

This suggests that non-Saudi investors can perhaps invest in dedicated Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) which primarily invest in real estate in the Two Holy Cities. However, it is not clear when this rule will be applicable as at the time of writing this article we tried purchasing shares of the Jadwa Haramain REIT fund that exclusively deals with properties in Makkah and Madinah on the Saudi stock exchange but the buy order was not accepted.
