Bulgaria Residency By Investment

Investors using the pathway described for obtaining Bulgarian citizenship receive permanent citizenship after making their initial investments. It is also possible to obtain “continuous residence” —

  • a long-term residency visa that only lasts for a year, but which can be renewed indefinitely — by investing at least 500,000 lev (£231250) to take over, or
  • create a business that employs at least 10 people;
  • by investing 250,000 lev in a company that creates at least five jobs in an economically challenged region; or
  • by investing 600,000 lev (£277495) in real estate.
