The Bulgarian Citizenship by Investment Programme offers the possibility to acquire the citizenship of Bulgaria, a member of the European Union, by making an investment. This is an important advantage, as other programmes require to make a donation to the government, buying a property or the creation of jobs.
By making an investment, the programme allows the applicant the possibility of making profit, as well as of a contribution to the Bulgarian economy.
A further advantage is the wide range of qualifying investment classes, and the option of a Fast Track, which allows the applicant to obtain citizenship in 1.5 years.

NBLO helps Dutch investor win summary judgment in High Court for the sum of GBP 192,000
New Balkans Law Office has acted for Mr Kooter, the individual claimant in legal proceedings recently covered by the British press (e.g., The Evening Standard) and subsequently also in Bulgarian news media (e.g., 24 Chasa).
NBLO has represented Mr Kooter throughout the matter. We assisted with the enforcement of a worldwide freezing order issued by the High Court in London against real estate, bank account and other assets of the defendant situated in Bulgaria. As part of the attempts to preserving assets for enforcing his claim, the claimant also proceeded on the basis of prejudiced against him as a creditor. NBLO additionally acted on various ancillary aspects.
Separately, through one of NBLO’s partners who is dual-qualified as an English barrister, NBLO formed part of Mr Kooter’s UK legal team. In the UK, Mr Kooter won summary judgment for the sum of £192,000, interest and legal costs. The sum awarded was the entire claim by Mr Kooter relating to sums which Ms Radeva had ostensibly offered to invest on his behalf. For a separate part of the claim (approx. €36,000), the High Court was unable to give a summary (effectively, early-stage) judgment on the basis that unlike the investment related claim, the basis of these transfers could not be established without a full investigation of evidence including oral hearings.
