Hi folks,

It seems that I need an EHIC for my 5 year residency. From checking onlne I find that I have to go through the BG authorities to get this. I live near Plovdiv. Do I go to the Immigration office at the police station or is there another department who deals with this? Thanks for any advice!

Go online and apply for a UK one and have it sent to a UK address, its free!

Thanks. I have in fact just phoned the UK and have been told that unless I receive a state pension or benefits (whic I don't), I do not qualify for an EHIC. Is this right?

Its correct if you told them that you live in BG? Its easier to apply for a EHIC in UK, if you dont want to do that then you need to take out private medical insurance for residence. You cant get a Bulgarian EHIC until you have residence and are registered on and paying into the health system here.
