Obtaining a land concession

1. General step

The right to use a land fund is called "concession". It is legally established by a registration certificate of land granted by the State. It is unassailable after two years from the date of its establishment.

So regularly registered land rights are secure.

There are two types of concessions :

  • Perpetual concession, reserved for Congolese (without time limitation) ;
  • Ordinary concessions available to Congolese and foreigners (for a period of 25 years renewable without any limitation).
