Governance as Practice: Regulating Lifestyle Migration
- 201 Downloads
This chapter makes clear how the foreign investment in property anticipated by residential tourism is further supported by specialist visa regimes, which incentivise such investments through tax breaks and other favourable terms of residence. In this way, migrants-cum-investors are treated as exceptional cases. What also becomes clear, however, is the tension between how the migrants themselves manipulate these structures and the tightening and relaxing of these in legislative practice that aims at the exclusion of those less-desirable migrants using such entry routes.
