The table below reflects the total number of applications received, approved and refused, in relation to Entitled status under Regulation 2(1) (e) of the Control of Housing and Work (Residential and Employment Status) (Jersey) Regulations 2013, for each of the years from 2010 to date.

High net worth applicants engage with Locate Jersey prior to formal application and will go through a detailed due diligence process in order to obtain their Entitled residential and employment status.

This includes submission of a personal, business and financial profile to confirm the applicant's background, net worth and ability to satisfy the required minimum tax liability of £125,000 per annum.

Consideration will also be given to any risk or reputational issues for Jersey. This provides a high degree of assurance over the course of the process.
