Improvements to the procedure involved in applying under the Bulgarian citizenship

Further improvements to the transparency of the procedure involved in applying under the Bulgarian citizenship by investment programme.

The Bulgarian Ministry of Justice has published on its website lists of supporting documents, which in its view are expected from applicants for citizenship by investment under both the standard and fast tracks to citizenship by investing.

Each category of document in the list is broadly related to a requirement in the Bulgarian Citizenship Act(BCA) and the Decree-Law on the application of Chapter Five of the BCA: e.g., the requirement to provide a criminal record check is fleshed out by the need to demonstrate that the applicant has clear criminal past and is not a threat to public order and national security.

The MoJ advises that each supporting document should be listed in the application form, duly legalised and translated.

These official lists contribute to the transparency of the programme and the smooth completion of the process.

Logica plc, now part of CGI, a consultancy & outsourcing business

NBLO has provided broad support to Logica’s CEE regional head office, including on the validity of certain commercial agreements and proposed agreements and on effecting various company secretarial actions. Our commercial work for this client is representative of our time-sensitive non-contentious practice. The firm’s emphasis on an integrated cross-jurisdictional approach and dual-qualified staff have also proven valuable in dealing with the need for valid certification by senior UK-based directors and the resignation of other UK-based individual directors who were no longer available and/or willing to execute documentation.
