The medical services could just be informed that a long stay card does not give the bearer of it free or reduced cost access to health care in the UK, unless the owner is a pensioner. Seems a lot simpler to me!

I think you mean 'FROM the UK", Lee and I agree and find the aim quite laudable.

However, what happens if you are in a car accident or are suddenly afflicted with a debilitating illness in BG and have no insurance at all, do 'authority' and the doctors just leave you a-quivering and a-bleeding out on the street? You can imagine what sort of coverage that would be given in our much-admired British press..

I'm all for equality in all things, having been much inconvenienced myself last summer by the rampant variations in and the misapplication of these 'rules'. But for some reason, a sense of ominous future failure forbades me from nominating myself as the champion of the people and I find it easier just to mainly go with the flow in my region, however discomforting the eddies might subsequently prove to be.

Let's remember this topic is to discuss the end of the Long Stay Card.

Whilst we understand that the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC, previously E111) and / or the health insurance issue is part of this, we do have a dedicated topic for the finer points of these along with joining the Bulgarian Health service system. If you wish to discuss these further, away from the issues of renewing or gaining new Long Term or Permanent Residency status, please go to one of these:

Am I right in remembering that the new photo card should cost 18leva?

I think you will find it rather more than 18 lv. There are other things to be taken into account - even getting a letter from the bank will set you back 20 lv each.

But only 18leva at the MVR? I say this as I was confused when I read this on the VT MVR website
(http://www.veliko-tarnovo.mvr.bg/Uslugi ... efault.htm):

2. Разрешаване на постоянно пребиваване в Република България.
Основанията за разрешение са посочени в чл.25 и чл.25а от Закона за чужденците в Република България.
Такси:
- За искане на услугата - 10 лв.
- За разрешаване на постоянно пребиваване - 1000 лв.
- За разрешаване на постоянно пребиваване на чужденец, на основание на сключен брак с български гражданин - 150 лв.

Maybe my misunderstanding.

In answer to the question about fees....I guess those are for 'foreigners', we of course are EU citizens, so don't count as 'foreigners' :lol:
