Oops - enterprising state of Cyprus is raising EUbrows!

So, as mentioned here before, this is the price of belonging to the EU for every citizen and what the British public are losing out on with their madcap Brexit:


The government of Cyprus has raised more than €4bn since 2013 by providing citizenship to the super rich, granting them the right to live and work throughout Europe in exchange for cash investment. More than 400 passports are understood to have been issued through this scheme last year alone.

Soon, it will be the super-rich of the UK that are having to spend millions to have an EU brand. :P

That's the sore point ...

Here's the paltry UK sell-out:

You can apply for a Tier 1 (Investor) visa if:

you want to invest £2,000,000 or more in the UK
you’re from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland

Competition, eh? :)

Which 'brand' is best?

Glad you think Brexit is madcap.

Subtle difference... Cyprus is selling citizenship, the UK is not...

Whether anyone will want a long term tier 1 UK visa is open to question.

The Cypriot deal is better.
