Roman Abramovich will be allowed to visit Britain for up to six months at a time after gaining Israeli citizenship, Downing Street has confirmed – but he will be barred from working for Chelsea FC while in the UK.
The Russian billionaire, who owns a £125million mansion in London ‘s Kensington, made the move to become an Israeli citizen after the renewal of his British visa was hit by a delay.
Downing Street declined to comment on the specifics of the 51-year-old tycoon’s case – but a spokesman for Theresa May confirmed holders of Israeli passports are allowed to visit Britain for up to six months under a waiver scheme.
Under the rules, Israeli visitors are not allowed to work or live in Britain. Immigration enforcement officers police the rules and could act if Mr Abramovich was known to be working at Stamford Bridge or engaging in activity to run Chelsea while in the UK.
Separate rules do allow the Home Office to ban named individuals from the UK even if they hold passports from countries with waiver schemes. But there is no indication this would be the case with Mr Abramovich.

More than 100 people who have ‘engaged in unacceptable behaviour’ have been banned from Britain since 2005 – typically hate preachers, individuals deemed bad for the public good and people subject to international sanctions.
There is no suggestion Mr Abramovich is likely to be subject to the named individual scheme.
