For the sake of fight against crime: London suspended issue of investment visas


By 2019 it will be renewed, but rules will become tougher. Gold visas like Tier-1 Russians and Chinese for obtaining the residence permit used generally the British flag over embassy in Moscow.

Writes Bloomberg with reference to the statement of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Great Britain about it. The reason is called the reform directed to fight against laundering of income and organized crime. Issue of visas will be resumed in new year, but by much tougher rules. "We will not stand people who play not by rules and seek to abuse a system" — the minister of immigration Caroline Nouks said. For the last decade the British authorities issued about three thousand investor visas allowing to obtain citizenship within several years. The most part fell on citizens of Russia and China. Why London decided to close completely the program in anticipation of toughening of rules of check of states? The director of the Moscow office of the Tax Consulting UK company Eduard Savulyak argues on it: — Frankly speaking, we did not observe any wave yet, the number of applications annually did not pass even for one thousand. Roughly speaking, the fact that there hundred people are more or less I think, for Great Britain and the market in general strongly did not change a situation.

After all when Great Britain introduced these visas in the 1980th years, it was talked about one million pounds (at all not the fact that now). Today it is just inexpensive way to receive spare airfield. In all honesty, I think, all oligarchs what wanted, these passports already received. It obviously without having run Russians, but the prejudiced relation in London to the Russian compatriots is unambiguous is, the lawyer, the managing partner of the London lawyer bureau "Gladyshev and Partners" Vladimir Gladyshev says: — 38 people are not mass influx of the Somali refugees. It is about a political action, about to letting, first of all, Russians, Chinese got under distribution, maybe, some claims to them are too. The wave assumes that the Russian businessman could not earn the capital without considerable communications with Putin and his environment. — Why British visas what countries give comparable opportunities for investors are so popular? — First of all, Malta, partly Portugal, it is not really difficult to receive the residence permit in Spain, but you get under regulation of the EU. Great Britain is almost only country,
