Fast-track 12 months after residency
Right to live, work and travel in EU
Low tax rate
This programme, which seeks to attract foreign individuals, is a two-step process that starts with residency and culminates in citizenship, upon investing a minimum of €511,292 in a government bond portfolio and by fulfilling other requirements. Successful applicants will receive citizenship to an EU member country allowing the freedom to live, work and travel throughout the EU.
Applicants choosing this option must deposit in a Governmental Bond Portfolio for an investment period of five years, with no further payment required. At the end of the five-year period, the full amount will be returned to the investor without any accrued interest. The investment is fully guaranteed by the government bonds.
For a set pre-paid fee, clients can leverage their capital by choosing the Financed Investment option. These individuals pay a reduced amount that will be used to finance a closed 5.5-year loan from a Bulgarian chartered bank. This loan is initiated and repaid at no further cost to the investor.
There is also a fast track which allows investors to apply for citizenship faster by doubling their investment.
