Citizenship by Investment
Bulgaria is one of several EU member states which offers a citizenship by investment (CBI) and a residence by investment (RBI) programmes.
To qualify for citizenship on the Fast Track, you need to:
Invest approx €1,000,000 (approx €500,000 on the Standard Track)
Invest in bonds issued in euros or one of another three investment classes
Travel to Bulgaria up to three times over the ~2-year application period
You do not need to:
Make Bulgaria your residence (though you could)
Learn to speak the national language
Meet other requirements which may apply in other EU CBI/RBI countries
Once a Bulgarian and therefore an EU citizen, you benefit from:
Visa-free travel to an estimated 169 countries
Freedom of movement rights within the EU and its 28 members, the EEA, and Switzerland
A range of economic and social rights
Your husband/wife can apply for citizenship, too. Your children and any child of your children in perpetuity can also apply at any time in the future - each of them without further investment.
