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.
