Citizenship of Bulgaria

through investment in government bonds

The Bulgarian Immigrant Investor Programme (BGIIP), was created in 2009 with an amendment to the Foreigners in the Republic of Bulgaria Act.

Bulgaria, officially the Republic of Bulgaria, is a unitary state on the Balkan Peninsula in southeastern Europe bordering the Black Sea in the east. The country has shared borders with Greece, the Republic of Macedonia, Romania, Serbia, and Turkey.

Soul-stirring mountains rival golden beaches while cities hum with nightlife and art. Within Bulgaria’s beguiling blend of nature and history, unforgettable adventures are guaranteed. "Somewhere between panoramas of the Pirin Mountains and the cobbled nooks of old Plovdiv, Bulgaria grabbed my imagination – and it still hasn’t let go. Bulgaria is a mysterious, multilayered country, with ski fields as fantastic as its beaches. But what keeps me enthralled is Bulgaria’s mash-up of ancient and cutting-edge culture. What could be more alluring than heavy metal concerts in a Roman stadium, light shows over a medieval fortress, or crumbling mansions reborn as bars? Archaeological discoveries are made all the time, so there’s something new and compelling each time I visit: the perfect excuse to keep coming back." - wrote Anita Isalska, the writer.

Bulgarian passport is an accessible, transparent and respectable gateway into the European economy, society and way of life.
