Re: Passport Application

If it was me I would definitely be contacting them asking for a sooner date, if they won’t guarantee a sooner arrival I would be going to the passport office in London to get it sooner, I understand this wouldn’t work for everyone as it could mean a long journey for those outside London.

Re: Wood burner

A neighbour who lives full time in Menorca is changing his woodburner for a pellet burner, the only downside is I think they don't work in a power cut, :smile:

Re: online, free bank account for non-residents

You could open up an account with Revolut, they do direct debits , very similar rates to transferwise and the transfers are free. :smile:

Re: online, free bank account for non-residents

Transferwise will soon be arranging facilities for direct debit, I have got the transferwise debit card, I have money on it in both sterling & euros, you can add more currencies if needed, it can be used like a normal debit card in the local currency :smile:
