I Have missed something ,

Is the BG government handing out PASSPORTS to REFUGEES ?

A simple YES or NO will do.


Probably, so they can move to the UK Confused !

I do carry my passport when out and about in BG, especially if driving. As a result, the passport is getting quite creased and the picture page is starting to de-laminate. I have been told at the UK border that when/if the de-lamination means that there is a problem with their reader taking data from the page, I will have to buy a new one. At the price a passport now costs, a hard back would be good! At home, I keep the passport in a tie press to try and encourage it to last a bit longer. Years ago we had many holidays in Alsace-Lorraine and would happily drive in and out of Germany, France, Belgium and Luxemburg without any documentation at all. The sooner we and BG are part of Schengen the better - less hassle and less cost!

Just buy a passport cover. My passports get a bit battered- I actually fill a large sized passport easily within the 10 year life- so they get more use than most- but a cover keeps it in something like decent order. Yes, once a clerk at an airport decides it is no longer "valid"- and that is very subjective- you are likely to have major problems.

If in Bg. do you renew at the UK Consulate?

On entering the EU, after months of documentation and processes, refugees finally get 'status', which gives them a right to remain here. There are two different types of status, the rarely given asylum and the far more common humanitarian grounds. The Syrians get the later. This gives them the right to stay in the EU only until the problem that drove them here is finally resolved and they can return. The passports are grey, and it says on the cover that they are temporary. They can move from Bulgaria to another country and try to live there, but they have to re-enter the process, i.e. if they go to the most popular option, Germany, they have to report to the police on arrival and they are placed back into camps for processing. In theory, they have three months to find work and if they are not self supporting in that time, they can be returned to the original place that they got their passports from. (The Dublin Agreement). They don't get given passports by the way, id cards and passports cost a total of 80 leva just like anyone else. There are nine stages of paperwork, fingerprinting and interviews to get through in Bulgaria before you get an ID card.

By the way, don't leave your passport in your jeans and wash them. Mine came out perfectly fine, until placed under a scanner, when it glowed from the washing powder and I had to pay 144 quidlets to renew it!

A Bulgarian ID card is better than a VIP status in Manchester.
I arrived by Easyjet from Sofia with crowds at the passport control for EU Passports and Other Passports. A securtity man was asking those joing the queue if they held Bulgarian ID's then to go down an empty isle which I, and I alone did. Without touching my passport all I had to do was have a quick swipe of my Bulgarian ID and I was free to to go leaving all those queueing behind me. What is more odd is that my Bulgarian ID was not adequet for departing from Sofia where it was my passport that had to be presented for emmigration.

Strange that: unless you are a Bulgarian citizen, a BG id card is not acceptable as a travel document for foreign travel nor as an official identity card. The only acceptable documents for these purposes - for a non-BG national - is a passport/id card issued by your country of nationality (or nationalities if you hold more than one).

The only odd thing is that you got through UK (I assume) immigration with the incorrect documentation, but things have been a mess in Luton and elsewhere recently anyway - not to mention that at least half the immigration staff look like ISIS wanabees... Wink

Strange indeed. I'm not a Bulgarian Citizen and I fully expected to be sent back to the EU Citizens queue. I also had my passport ready but the official did not want it. Down side is I'm probably on the MI5 dodgy list now. Confused

That definitely pushes you up a good few points in my estimation...have you had anyone asking where you keep your WMDs yet? Cool
