Passports and travel and Moving to Bulgaria from UK

You can apply for or renew your British passport from Bulgaria.

Check the Bulgaria travel advice for passport validity requirements.

Always carry your passport when travelling to other EU or European Free Trade Association (EFTA) countries. If you have citizenship of an EU or EFTA country, in addition to your British citizenship, you should enter and leave Bulgaria using your EU or EFTA passport.

Bulgaria is not part of the Schengen area. If you stay in Bulgaria with a Bulgarian residence permit or long stay visa, this time does not count towards your 90-day in 180 days visa-free limit in Bulgaria or for the Schengen area.

If you visit countries in the Schengen area, make sure you do not exceed the visa-free 90 days in any 180-day period. You are responsible for counting how long you stay under the Schengen visa waiver, and you must comply with its conditions.

Different rules apply if you are travelling to other EU and Schengen countries as a resident of Bulgaria. Check each country’s travel advice page for information on entry requirements.

If you were living in Bulgaria before 1 January 2021

When you travel, you should carry your residence document (Документ за пребиваване) or frontier worker permit issued under the Withdrawal Agreement, in addition to your valid passport.

You must proactively show your residence document, or other evidence of residence status, if you are asked to show your passport at border control. Other evidence may be your tenancy agreement or a utility bill in your name, dating from 2020. If you have applied for, but not yet received, your residence document, show your certificate of registration.

If you cannot prove that you are a resident in Bulgaria, you may be asked additional questions at the border to enter the EU. Your passport may be stamped on entry and exit. This will not affect your rights in the country or countries where you live or work. If a passport is stamped, the stamp is considered null and void when you can show evidence of lawful residence.

If you have rights under the Withdrawal Agreement, you can enter and exit Bulgaria with a valid passport. You do not need any additional validity on your passport beyond the dates on which you are travelling.

Saving money on International removals.

You can save money when moving internationally by working on reducing the volume of your consignment. Most international removals are based on a price per cubic metre.

By reducing your volume you should be able to reduce your removal costs.

Firstly really analyze what you are taking. If its cheap, big and bulky maybe its not worth taking? After that then flat pack down any furniture that you can and dismantle items to make them as compact as possible. The smaller the better. Maybe tape bits together or box them to make things easier to move and stack.

When packing boxes use clothes and bedding as padding rather than bubble wrap to further reduce your volume.

Remember not to pack boxes too heavy, make sure you can still lift it yourself. max box weight should really be 15 to 20 Kgs or the removal men will struggle and crushing may occur in the box or within the load on the truck.
