Commission reports on the risks of investor citizenship and residence schemes in the EU

On 23 January 2019, the European Commission presented for the first time a report about the risks of investor citizenship and residence schemes operated by several EU Member States.

The report is mainly aimed to identify such risks these schemes imply for the EU Member States, especially in connection with money laundering, tax evasion, corruption and security. 

In this field, lack of transparency and collaboration among Member States critically enhance the issue.
