What Impact Has Brexit Made for Moving Out of the UK?

What Impact Has Brexit Made for Moving Out of the UK?

Over the years, we have helped people start new lives in France, Ireland, Spain, and beyond. We have even helped people move to the UK from France, and help people navigate moving belongings post-Brexit when they move abroad.

The truth about moving away from the UK post-Brexit is that it has made things more complicated than ever. Whether you want to move to France, Spain, or anywhere else, Brexit has undeniably made things more difficult.

You can no longer freely move abroad if you are a UK citizen, and this is the biggest impact. In order to move to Bulgaria, or any other country outside the UK, you need to have extensive paperwork and the right to live and work in your new country.

Moving to Bulgaria – Why Would You do it?

There are many reasons for why someone would want to move to Bulgaria, and some might surprise you! Depending on the type of life you want to live, this country might be the perfect fit for you and all your wants and needs.

Some fantastic reasons you may want to move to Bulgaria include:

  • It’s very affordable, and had a cost of living that is far lower than most of Europe
  • It is a notoriously friendly country, with people you would be honoured to call friends and neighbours
  • Tax rates are low, with one of the lowest corporation taxes within Europe at 10%
  • It has fantastic internet
  • There are lots of animals and wildlife opportunities (wolves, brown bears wild boars, etc)
  • More relaxed way of life and less hectic
  • Bulgaria is a huge centre for the arts, including music and crafts
  • Fantastic climate year-round, so you can enjoy outdoor activities any time of the year
  • It’s a safe country, with no recent wars and very few extreme weather events

Bulgaria Residency Requirements

Bulgaria Residency Requirements

In order to move to Bulgaria from the UK, you need to have a valid passport and apply for a residence permit, which is also called a Long-term D Residence Visa. These permits can be used to enter the country for business, study, and research & development activities for up to a year.

To get permanent residency, you need to live in Bulgaria for five years with the D visa, and you can apply for Bulgarian citizenship down the line.

Costs to Consider When Moving Abroad

Unfortunately, not everyone can afford to move abroad thanks to all the associated costs. Since Brexit, the cost has only increased, too, making moving abroad even more of a burden than it was before, and something that you need to consider before jumping into the deep end.

A few of the costs of moving to another country like Bulgaria include the following:

  • Visas
  • Storage
  • Getting to the other country
  • Pet fees (where applicable)
  • Packing and shipping your belongings
  • Getting your new property (buying, renting, etc)
  • Insurance
  • Customs duties

Moving Your Belongings

At Weston & Edwards, we handle everything from customs clearance and can also offer storage facilities for anyone who is not able to directly move into their new homes abroad. We also offer insurance as part of our price, so you can rest easy knowing that you’re covered should the worst happen during the move.

We will transport your belongings by where necessary, where everything will be meticulously packed onto a shipping container and sealed before making the voyage. Once on the other side, your foods will be transported via vehicle right to your doorstep, wherever your new location is.

We can even help you with the process of packing up your house, because we know that this can be one of the most taxing and stressful parts of the whole process. To avoid making you feel like you are camping in your own home, we can start packing on the day before the big move. That way, you will be comfortable right up to the last moment, and there will be less for you to worry about.

With years of experience, we specialise in removals to a variety of popular European countries, including Bulgaria, and offer customised solutions to make the process as straightforward as possible.

Our skills in packing and protecting ensure that goods are as protected as they can be during transit. Your belongings are safe with us every step of the way, and we will help you unpack and dispose of the packing materials when you are done.

Moving with Pets

We all love our pets, but they can complicate moving and travelling. For additional information, read our blog on moving with pets post-Brexit to know what to expect and prepare for.

In order to move to travel to another country with pets, you need to ensure that:

  • The animal’s microchip has up-to-date information. This is also a legal requirement for all dogs, cats, and some other pets within the UK, and you can speak to your vet about getting it done for you.
  • In some cases, tapeworm treatment might be required too. This must be done and registered with the pet and must be shown in vet records for validity.
  • For pets who are three months or older, a valid rabies vaccination will be required.
  • An Animal Health Certification (AHC) that has been issued with 10 travel dates to show that your pet will not pose a throat or health risks once they’re in the new country and to ensure that they are fit to travel.
