23 countries where money can buy you a second passport or ‘elite residency’

The super-rich are no longer just spending their money on private jets, yachts, and hotels — they’re also splashing out on second passports.

The Second Citizenship Survey 2017 from CS Global Partners found that 89% of people would like to own a second passport, and over 34% said they had looked into investing in a second citizenship.

Luckily, a number of countries offer Citizenship by Investment (CIP) programs where money — normally invested in real estate — can actually buy a second passport, and the elite status that comes along with owning citizenship in another country.

Other programs offer “elite residency” — an extended visa with perks — in exchange for similar investments.

This London bar was just named the best in the world — and you’d better go soon before it closes

In a lavish ceremony in London, bartenders and restaurateurs from all over the world gathered to find out what bar had been named the best in the world by the World’s 50 Best organization.

This year, Dandelyan in London, owned by Ryan Chetiyawardana and Iain Griffiths, took home the prestigious award.

In a surprising twist, it was announced earlier this week and reiterated during the acceptance ceremony that Dandelyan will be closing their doors after four years in operation. While no closing date was officially announced, those who would like to try the inventive cocktails need to make their way to the celebrated bar fast.

Ryanair uses the UK Prime Minister’s dance move to tout tickets

Everyone who’s listened knows Ryanair and its CEO, Michael O’Leary, are no fans of Brexit. But that hasn’t stopped the Irish discount airline from using Theresa May to sell tickets.

When the U.K. prime minister bounded onstage to deliver her post-Brexit vision at the Conservative Party conference in Birmingham on Wednesday — awkwardly strutting to Abba’s “Dancing Queen” — the carrier’s social media team got to work.
