Confusion Reigns over Bulgaria Residence for EU Citizens
EU citizens are up in arms over confusion regarding their Bulgarian identity documents that have caused problems with residency and every day life.
After a Novinite.com investigation into the problems encountered with the Bulgarian certificate for long-term residence it has become clear that Bulgarian authorities are utterly confused over when and how EU citizens can use their identity cards and when they are allowed to apply for permanent residence.
EU citizens who contacted Novinite.com described the situation as "like apartheid" and urged the new center-right GERB government to take urgent action. They also described how they had been laughed at by Bulgarian banks, local government officials and police when they produced their "child-like" long-term residence certificates.
Before Bulgaria joined the EU, foreign citizens who had applied for a Bulgarian visa were rewarded with a card that had the same format as the lichna karta - including an LNCh identity number and a photo. However since 2007 when Brussels welcomed Bulgaria with open arms into the EU family, EU citizens have been met with confusion, annoyance and sometimes anger by the Bulgarian authorities after being issued with new long-term residence cards that do not include either an identity number or photo.
The Interior Ministry concluded that it is aware of the issue and stated that a bill is currently being discussed in the parliament to solve the problems.

And stay tuned. There is more coming on this subject.
"Even better stay in the US for life full of fat ass McDonalds, chemically-boosted growth hormones, ZERO liberty, fake moral values, glamour-blinded stupidity, pitifull mass ignorance, sky-high mortgages that will make sure you can never have a home of your own to grow old in and not to have to pay exorbitant monthly maintenance and property tax bills, medical insurance that tries to fвЂ¦ you up, when you really need it and disappears once you are out of job, mammoth big, but hidden and not so hidden at times corruption, boosted by the big economical empires, that silently play with your life as a toy and control every aspect of your buying habits and interests."
Is it Nellie who makes your blood boil or you have a problem with the USA?
Get in touch with your feelings, man. You are one angry Bulgarian! LOL
There was an individual on this board called вЂњproudtobeamericanвЂќ he disappeared and than magically nellie was born. Judging by the language and the empty pathos, plus the details of their shared past times, IвЂ™m completely convinced we are talking about the one and the same creature. It is not purely male it is not purely female, most likely should be a hermaphrodite of a kind.
