Bulgaria Citizenship By Investment Program

Bulgaria is one of the few EU member states that offer investors a clear and relatively fast path toward becoming a citizen and passport holder. The first step however, is to become a resident of Bulgaria, a much valued position among non-EU entrepreneurs as it allows for unlimited movement within the Schengen Zone.

Bulgarian Citizenship By Investment Program

The Bulgarian citizenship by investment program allows non-EU foreign investors the right to obtain permanent Bulgarian residence, with the opportunity  of claiming full Bulgarian – and as a result, EU – citizenship after five years.

The program requires an investor to purchase €512,000 (BGN 1 million) worth of Bulgarian Government Bonds. These bonds will be held for 5 years, and then paid out to the investor with 0% interest.

The Bulgarian Citizenship by Investment Program guarantees an investor (and their family) Bulgarian residency for five years. They will then be  eligible to apply for and receive Bulgarian (and EU) citizenship and its passport.

What We Offer You

If you employ our services to seek Bulgarian residency, you will achieve that status along with your Resident of Bulgaria card within two months of starting the residency process. Additionally, we will arrange to have the amount required to invest in Bulgarian Government Bonds reduced from €512,000 to just €65,000.

The figure normally attributed to Bulgarian residency is €512,000. Using our services will grant you a discount of around 60%.

Let Us Help!

Our goal is basically to help honest, hardworking non-EU citizens achieve greater freedom of movement by virtue of their residency or passport. Entrepreneurs from the Middle East, Asia and Africa increasingly find themselves restricted by their nationality and their passport, and the acquisition of second citizenship – ideally of an EU country – and subsequent ownership of a vastly more powerful passport will be life changing.

For more information on becoming a Bulgarian resident and ultimately citizen and receiving a Bulgarian passport, contact us today. We can give you all the information you require on Bulgaria’s current program, and explain how we can speed up the residency process, effectively delivering you your Bulgarian passport in a fraction of the normal time.

About Bulgaria

Bulgaria is a nation of 7.2 million people located in Southeastern Europe’s Balkan region. While Bulgaria borders five countries in Romania, Serbia, Macedonia, Greece and Turkey, its only coastline is to the Bulgarian Black Sea. Bulgaria has some 378 km’s of coastline, of which 130 km are golden sandy beaches, a significant factor in the country’s burgeoning holiday market.

Bulgaria is well known for its complex geography and diverse terrain: It is a mountainous country, one third of which is covered in dense forest. Wildlife is abundant, including grey wolves and brown bears.

Bulgaria’s landscape is crisscrossed with multiple rivers, the largest and most well-known being the Danube, which is Europe’s second-longest river after the Volga. Historians theorize that Bulgaria may be the oldest country in Europe, and its capital city Sofia can trace its history back to the 5th century B.C.

Following WW2, Bulgaria was absorbed into the “Eastern Bloc” of countries influenced/controlled by the former Soviet Union, and in a similar fashion to Poland, Romania, Hungary  and Czechoslovakia, was classed as an “allied state”. In 1989 after a succession of communist governments, the collapse of the Soviet Union led to open elections in Bulgaria, and in 1991 they adopted the democratic constitution and market-based economy that remains in place today. Bulgaria subsequently become a member of NATO, the UN Security Council, and in 2007 joined the European Union as a member state.

Bulgarian Economy

According to the World Bank, Bulgaria is an industrialized, upper-middle-income nation which in recent years has seen rapid economic growth. Historically Bulgaria’s economy was based around the industrial and agricultural markets. While those remain intact and vital today, they have been superseded by the services industry and tourism as the country’s main economical contributors and largest employers

Bulgaria’s industries include electricity, gas, water, base metals, chemical products, refined petroleum and nuclear fuel. While 30% of the workforce is employed in industry, more than 60% work in services (banking, finance and commerce, tourism (bars, restaurants and hotels), arts and entertainment, health, education, transportation, information technology, and telecommunications etc.

In recent decades, Bulgaria has become increasingly popular as a tourist and holiday destination. Bulgaria is known as an ideal summer holiday destination, and thanks to its mountainous regions and snowy winters, is also perfect for skiing vacations (pictured). With some 10 million annual visitors, tourism accounts for 15% of Bulgaria’s GDP and supports a workforce of over 50,000 people.

Historically Bulgaria has been influenced by Ottoman, Persian, Greek and Slavic settlers whose influences still remain in its rich heritage of music and dance, costumes and craft, which is greatly enjoyed by today’s tourists. Bulgaria has fabulous beaches and high quality hotels, bars and tourist resorts which make it more than a match for  the far more expensive Mediterranean destinations like Spain, France, Italy and the Greek islands.
