Immigration: Bulgaria

Comprehensive immigration profile on Bulgaria for those considering a relocation.

As relocation experts, at Move One we understand how important it is to make the transition to your new home as seamless as possible. To that end, Move One features a country every month, providing an in-depth look at relocation, immigration, moving and pet transportation issues.

This month’s spotlight focuses on immigration to Bulgaria.

In recent years, Schengen accession has been the main focus of Bulgaria’s immigration legislation. In 2011 the Balkan country fulfilled all conditions which allow accession to the Schengen area. At the time of writing Bulgaria is awaiting all member states to give their final consent for accession. According to speculation, the Schengen area will open its sea and air borders to Bulgaria in March 2012 and land borders in July 2012.

Bulgaria has already become an attractive country for foreigners due to its geographic position as an external border of the European Union. According to statistics from the ministry of interior, migrants mostly arrive from Afghanistan, China, and from former Yugoslav and Soviet republics. Many foreigners use Bulgaria as a transit country to access Western Europe but there is also a growing number of non-EU foreigners who arrive to set up business in the country.

For an overview of immigration to Bulgaria please visit our immigration country profile.

Topics covered include Business Travel outlining scope of business activities, entry requirements and limitations as well as formalities required on arrival to Bulgaria for business. The Work Purpose section explains typical procedures and time-lines through an interactive experience. The work section also contains list of possible work permit exemptions, penalties in case of non-compliance and information important for accompanying family members. The third section, Vital Documents introduces birth and marriage certificate procurement details and how such documents may be authenticated for use abroad.

Each section of the profile features very useful samples of immigration documents.
