Foreigners no longer need military authorization to buy a home in locations of strategic interest for national defence.

The Ministry of Defense has just published a service order addressed to the General Directorate of Infrastructures to eliminate the obligation to request a military authorization from foreigners who will acquire a home in a locality classified as of strategic interest for national defence. 

The order was issued by the Ministry of Defense. It indicates that in those municipalities affected by the regulation in which the land has been approved in a partial plan or is classified as urban land, it will not be necessary to apply for a military permit. Only those homes that are on undeveloped land will be the ones that will have to request this permit.
