Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Maybe not for much longer.

"The EU Commission has told EU states to tighten checks on non-EU nationals who acquire citizenship - so-called "golden passports" - through investments.

The Commission plans closer monitoring of those schemes and of "golden visas" granting residence in exchange for big investments. It says they can be abused for tax evasion and money-laundering.

EU citizenship gives an individual free movement in most of the EU, easy access to the single market and other rights.

Twenty EU countries have such schemes."

Yes, that's what prompted my comment. I'm guessing there will be a rush on such "investments for passports" until the loophole closes.
