EU Citizenship by Investment and Residence by Investment in Bulgaria

Overview

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 family

  • 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.
