On 27th September, This is Jersey reported that, in the light of reports of the Swiss rejecting a residency application from Roman Abramovich, ‘rigorous’ background checks are carried out on all super-rich immigrants before they are granted the right to live in Jersey.  The checks carried out in Jersey include a risk assessment on anyone considered to be a ‘politically exposed’ or ‘high-profile’ person, independent due diligence and consultation with the Jersey FSC and the States of Jersey Police.  Earlier this year, it was revealed that Mr Abramovich was granted residency rights in the Island under the 21E scheme for ‘High Value Residents’.
