Real Estate in Yemen

By Joshua Wood, LPC

Last updated on Mar 01, 2024

Summary: An expat searching for a home to buy in Yemen should start by researching the local real estate market and speaking with a local real estate agent. It is important to understand the local laws and regulations regarding foreign ownership of property in Yemen. Foreigners are allowed to own property in Yemen, but there are certain restrictions. For example, foreigners are not allowed to own land in Yemen, and they must obtain permission from the Ministry of Interior before purchasing a property. Houses in Yemen typically include basic amenities such as running water, electricity, and sewage systems. Many homes also have air conditioning, internet access, and other modern amenities.

How do I find a place to live in Yemen?

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:

"Finding a place to live in Yemen can be a challenge. It is important to research the area you are interested in living in and to be aware of the security situation. You can start by looking for rental listings online, or by asking friends and family who may have connections in the area. Additionally, you can contact local real estate agents who may be able to help you find a suitable place to live. It is also important to consider the cost of living in the area, as well as the availability of amenities such as transportation, healthcare, and education. Finally, it is important to be aware of the cultural norms and customs of the area you are considering living in," said one person in Yemen.
