Ending the UK’s Golden Visa Regime

16 November, 2022 | 0 minute read

Following repeated evidence that those under investigation by the NCA in money laundering cases had received Tier 1 Investor visas, Spotlight produced a briefing on the golden visa regime. We then conducted Parliamentary work to argue for the regime to be suspended in light of serious vulnerabilities in it. In February 2022, the government closed the regime entirely. We contributed significantly to this outcome. We continue to advocate for a crucial government report on the security risks of the regime to be published.
