Chelsea FC owner Roman Abramovich eligible to become Israeli

ANTHONY ANEX  EFE

Over the last week or so, Abramovich was trying to renew his United Kingdom visa which had expired but curiously enough, he was unable to do so.

They added: "His documents were examined under the "law of return" and he was indeed entitled to immigrant status in Israel, and as a result he was issued an immigration visa".

With a net worth of $11 billion, Abramovich instantly became one of the richest Israelis.

Abramovich flew to Israel on Monday after receiving confirmation that he was eligible for citizenship under the country's Law of Return, which allows Jews to become citizens. He recently was denied a new visa for the country. His previous visa was granted before more rigorous regulations were instituted in April 2015.

Reports in Israel-based Russian language media claim Abramovich was on the ground at Ben Gurion Airport for around three hours after arriving in his €64m private Boeing 767 jet.

Amid a spiralling diplomatic crisis between London and Moscow over the poisoning of a former Russian double agent, there have been calls in Britain for sanctions that would hurt super-rich Russians with homes in London. Several Russian diplomats were expelled following the incident.




It is believed that he missed the FA Cup final between Chelsea and Manchester United due to the hold-up. He has owned the team since 2003 and has been present at almost every game, until his visa problems began.

An official from Israel's Immigration Ministry, said the Chelsea football club owner was in Israel.

From 2000 to 2008, Roman Abramovich served as governor of Russia's far-eastern Chukotka peninsular and injected millions of dollars in investments to the distant region.

The award is signed by Rabbi Alexander Boroda, President of the FJCR and the Chief Rabbi of Russia, Berel Lazar.

The JEP revealed earlier this year that Mr Abramovich had been granted residency rights in the Island under the 21E scheme for "High Value Residents".
