Hmmm, page 14 seems relevent.

I think it is giving three seperate grounds for living here, employment or self employment, being self supporting with health insurance, or being a student. Pensioners I would guess come into the second catagory. I assume that being a family member (spouse, child or parent) of a self employed or employed person means you use their grounds for residence.

Whatever grounds you choice for residency, you may have to (IMHO) show that those grounds and conditions still exist when you come up to the five year application for permanent residency. That could be a bit tricky in some cases.


Page 24 is very interesting and seems to say that if you buy land here as your primary residence not a second residence, you don't need a company. I would like some legal opinion on that one....

If the UK does not accept medical cover from the NHS as sufficient comprehensive medical insurance then, I cannot see how Bulgaria can accept our applications based on voluntary payments into their medical health service even for those that have managed to achieve that big step.


The answer could be that the Bulgarian scheme is an insurance scheme rather than a taxpayer funded scheme, so it would seem to satisfy the requirements of the Directive.

Useful analysis of the different types of scheme here http://www.pnhp.org/single_payer_resour ... models.php

Sorry that I've been disturbing the page structure again :twisted:

You can find the UKBA document I was quoting from and many other helpful articles on EU residence law here http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/sitec ... dlaw/ecis/

As this is common EU-wide law supreme law its application everywhere should be very much the same.

You're not usually a 'could be' kind of guy, but it makes sense. Thank you. :wink:

I know that these links have been posted previously, but I'm unable to locate them at the moment, so with Brexit looming and now the enforced general election a few weeks away, I thought that maybe this topic should be brought up to date.
Perhaps the outcome from these events will see more Brits wishing to escape these chaotic shores!

If there is any new information or better links then please post.

Both links give the correct information. There should be no change now until Brexit, and hopefully that won't be too painful for us
