Re: Legalising UK documents when living in Greece

calman014 Yeah, that's what I did. The service I used ordered it, legalised it, and then posted it on. Cost a bit more obviously, but good in terms of time.

Re: Legalising UK documents when living in Greece

The GOV website says they should be legalised in the country they were issued, so I assume not. I had to have my birth certificate legalised in the UK for my citizenship application. To save time I...

Re: Moving to Romania

Also, thinking long-term, a place close to the metro would be easier to rent out to young professionals. Obviously though, that might be reflected in the purchase price. You could take a look at the...

Re: Moving to Romania

Hi Roxa,

Yes, expats can own properties here. Anyone can buy a house or a flat, but only EU citizens can own land (for example, the land a house is built on), although that can be solved but...

Re: Moving from UK to Bulgaria

No, you can't lose your citizenship. The thing with being present for a certain number of days (usually half a year per year) is generally to do with residency permits/certificates. Some countries...

Re: Moving from UK to Bulgaria

You just have to keep them updated about your address and bank details. The contract details have changed from year to year so I don't know if your contract is the same as mine, but in my case the...

Re: România

ANAF is like Inland Revenue. Landlords are supposed to register rental contracts with them. Sometimes they offer a cheaper price if you don't want/need a contract. You do, as you'll be applying for...

Re: Algarve vs. Costa de la Luz: their pros & cons as British retiree destinations)

No first-hand experience but I've seen on the news that Spain have stated that UK citizens will be allowed to stay even in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

Re: România

Can't remember the last time we had a significant power cut here in Bucharest. Sometimes there is a momentary out, a second or two, then it's back. It's just a pain as it'll restart the PC. Doesn't...

Re: Brexit....?

You might be able to find a teaching job here. There are some language schools but they generally don't pay to well and sometimes don't guarantee a sufficient amount of work to earn a decent living....

The UK government certainly hasn't! :lol:

I guess it all boils down to what deal is struck and what dates are considered as 'cut off points'. If you've lived wherever you are for five years or...

Re: România

Quite a few people I've known over the years have started off in Bucharest till they got to grips with the country, then moved to Brasov for a change of lifestyle. I might even do it myself one day.

Re: Scared by Brexit

What BIP said. As a qualified native English speaker, it's a little easier for an employer to justify getting you a work visa over local applicants. However, the advantage EU native speakers have had...

Re: România

Hi,

You can get an idea of rental prices for various areas/cities using the website OLX (a classified ad site).

The residency certificate is pretty easy to do. You'll need to open a bank...

Re: Cheapest countries to live?

You could consider Bucharest. A studio in a nice area should be about 350 Euro per month, or for the same price you could get a one bedroom in a less central area. My bills (block bills, electricity,...

Re: Anyone prefer a LHD in the UK and RHD on the continent
