hi Pauline, we live on an island so for London = 2 flights. yep, Ireland would be better for us, two ferries and we can take the car with us. I'll see what I can find out as well.
Hi DI
do you know, once your visa is ready do you have to collect it in person or will they post it out? Thanks for all your help and advice and patience. Have you had many replies about advertising your B&B? I hope it goes well, good luck
jan

Hi Jan,
Its dizzie Di. Actually my name is Diane, but I really am Dizzy so that is my real nickname. Yes you have to collect the visas in person, that is the annoying part, another trip, more expense, check out if you are allowed to go to Ireland for the visa first please. A member of the forum who has bought a house in the next village here has been great, she has sent me lots of info about advertising the B&B.
We are still going to stick to our original plan and buy another house, do it up and then rent it out for fishing and activity holidays. I hope!
Take care let me know how you go on. I will ask our mayoress here if you need anything I can';t help you with

Hi janhargreen and allandy

Have just found the Irish Bulgarian Embassy web site there is a phone number and will call to find out the facts.
But have been thinking we would not be able to leave our passports ?When we applied for the c visas we sent photo copies of our passport and then nearer the time sent our passports for them to put in the entries,but could we be able to do that with D visas ?What do you think

i posted all paperwork for D type visa to the BG embassy in london and this was acceptable. Then just work out 30 working days and your visa will be ready. Include a phone number and if there are any queries they will ring you.

If you can't get thru on embassy vis number (which you never can!) try ringing Mr Vsselinov on 0207 584 9379 you usually get thru straight away and he's very helpful and will find out when your visa will be ready.

When i went to pick my visa up i didn't have an appointment but talked my way in anyway!!

Now living in kavarna and its brill. Husband already has his ID card and hope i will have soon.

hi pauline
have found a site called bulgarianvisas.com who seem to be pretty good. You get all your documents certified then send them to that firm who present them to the bg embassy and then they post out your visa to your home. They charge a fee but it's not extortionate. might be worth checking them out.
hi Diane
that's great about your B&B. i think it'll be a good earner for you. Have you decided where to buy your other property yet or are you still looking? I like your nickname. I used to get called "calamity jan" because if anyone was going to break something it was me!
Hi Russy
great news about the visas by post and thanks for the phone number for Mr VSSELINOV. I'm glad that you, like Diane, are enjoying "living the dream" in BG.
In some ways I will be sad to leave home because it's beautiful here - plenty of space and fresh air but brrrrrrrr too much rain cold and wind [gales really] and expensive to live.
regards to you all
jan

Hi janhargreen
Have already looked into this company and sent for details,they stated that we would have to still take the application to the Embassy,not sure what they will do for the money they charge except for advice which we appear to be getting from this good forum and its members.Know what you mean by the weather in the Borders its rain and more rain at the moment.Cannot wait until we go on the 21st to Bg for christmas.

Thanks russy for the advice think we might chance our luck they can always send them back ,if they want and all we have lost is the postage.

Hi Jan,
Thanks for the reply.
We are still looking for another house,we are going to Rouse on Sunday to look a a few and then to our friends who have been enquiring for us near Bourgas. As long as the house is near where you can fish we are not really bothered about the area.
Pauline
Hope you enjoy your Xmas here, where are you staying? If its not too far away from us we could perhaps meet up for a chat
