One thought on “Youth Citizenship and Social Change, Sofia

  1. US citizen you do not need a visa to enter the EC for toruist purposes, just observe the time limits, I think you are limited to 90 days. You will not be entitled to free health care so it could be very expensive if the worst happens, ensure you have adequate health insurance in place.For a permanent move to the EC things are much harder. Your best chance is likely to be to obtain a Checz passport, but you may be required to give up your US passport. Check if the Checz Government permits dual citizenship..
