Bulgarian citizenship by investment – still possible in 2023 (for the lucky ones)
Special conditions until 31.12.2023
If you have been following the investment citizenship marketplace in the past couple of years, you are probably thinking that it is all over. You may be thinking that after the demise of all EU Golden Passport programs, there are no options left.
Well, now there are the Bulgarian special provisions! And you may be eligible for Bulgarian citizenship at this very moment!
From now on, for some lucky investors, the Bulgarian investment citizenship route is open again. And yes, should you fulfill the requirements, you can now apply and get full Bulgarian citizenship and EU passport.
The requirements to get Bulgarian investment citizenship in 2023
It’s pretty straightforward. In order to be eligible for Bulgarian citizenship by investment now, the following two conditions need to be met:
You should have made an investment in Bulgarian government bonds under the old (pre-2021) legislation. This investment should have been held on your name for at least 5 years.
Permanent residence permit
You should be holding Bulgarian permanent residence permit by investment for at least 5 years.
And that’s it. If the above applies to you and you are either member of the VD&A Gold Club, the Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce or are accepted by our due diligence department, you may be only a few months from your EU passport.
The good news
The good news is, unexpected for many, that obtaining investment citizenship under the special provisions means that:
You don’t need to pass Bulgarian language exam!
You don’t need to surrender your existing citizenship(s)!
Your family members also qualify for Bulgarian citizenship, provided that you are approved!
Sounds too good to be true? With the professional support of Posolstvo.eu, you can rest assured that your file will be handled professionally and with 100% legal compliance. Please be advised though that unless you are member of VD&A GC / HKGCC, we may be not in position to accept your application.
