Military Permit to Buy a Rustic Plot in the Balearic Islands
If you are interested in buying a rustic plot in the Balearic Islands, it is important that you know that as a non-EU foreigner you will need a Spanish military permit.
This requirement applies to those who wish to acquire a property on rustic land in towns that are in the “Restricted access zones for foreigners” that comprise more than 1500 Spanish municipalities. If this is your case, you must request this permit from the Spanish Ministry of Defense.
Military Permit Requirement for Non-EU Foreigners
Both residents of the United Kingdom and the rest of non-EU foreigners, with the exception of citizens of the countries that belong to the Schengen area, must have a military permit if they want to buy a property located in the aforementioned areas.
