Reply with quote

My girlfriend lost her purse yesterday, luckily she had very little money in it, but she did say to me that if she is caught without her ID card she will be fined 25 leva!
So what about other nationalities who live in BG? are you obliged to carry some sort of ID with you everywhere?

Yes - if you don't have the photo ID you're supposed to carry your passport - not sure if you'd get fined for not having it though.

Yes you can be fined for not carrying ID. When giving lifts in our jeep to town, it is common for our neighbours to ask each other if they have their ID in their bags to make sure that there will be no problems. I have seen my teacher who lives in town go white when she realised she had left her purse at home with her card in it. Of course this applies to us as well as Bulgarians. I have got used to checking my bag for my card holder before leaving for town. In the village it is not a problem.

I would think that another form of photo id such as a driving license would do, but have not tried this.

It is useful to always carry some ID in this modern world as one never knows what might happen - who would have placed bets on there being a bomb placed on a bus in Burgas Airport for example.

However, besides the occasional stop and document check by KAT (Traffic Police) who else asks for ID on the streets - In all of my years in Russia, it was quite a common occurrence for a Militiaman to stop you on the streets, salute and ask to see your documents. I did not see this as something aimed towards Public Safety, but more of a ploy for the Police to find something wrong with your residence or visa and extort money.

Has anyone on here ever been stopped on the streets here and asked for their documents?

I think you would be asked if you were a witness to something or a crime had been committed in your vicinity.

Yes, on a few occasions in five years here, not so much on the streets but on the forest tracks that surround us and on one occasion on a local beach late on a winters evening, I spend a lot of time walking out with my dog. On every occasion it was Border Police who stopped me and after production of residency card normally they want to have the conversation about why would a foreigner want to live in BG etc, they are usually quite interested in my dog, a 70kilo Planinski Karakachan. This branch of MVR are usually in Landrovers and their areas of patrol extend 60 kilometres inland of all BG borders.

Anyone know if the new biometric id cards and passports can be got faster if you pay more or do you have to wait a month to collect them?

In reply to earlier questions on this thread:

I have been stopped by police several times and asked for identification. My habit of carrying a rucksack seems to attract their interest. On a couple of occasions I was walking the streets after midnight, as I quite often do, due to strange train timetables. I produced my UK driver's license photocard and they have always seemed quite happy with this. I don't have a lichna carta and prefer to keep my passport safely at home unless I am leaving the country.

Interesting today - my Bank - DSK told me that from now on my 'Foreign ID Card' - would not be accepted as ID - this is the one with the photo etc..they need a passport. When asked why she just said new rules - also they now charge 1lev per withdrawal.
So not sure if this is a DSK thing or a general rule.....anyone with any similiar problems Question Question

Maybe they want you to use the cashpoint? I bet they don't charge for paying in!!!!

Some banks even list a charge for depositing banknotes that are out of order, that is not sorted by denomination, not all notes in same orientation and same side upwards etc.

They haven't come up yet with charging in case the serial numbers of the banknotes are not sorted as well.

Also they do not charge a fee for entering the bank branch, through the door that is.

A simple YES or NO will do.
