How can we obtain Bulgarian citizenship?

We have clients from Russia, Hong Kong, and mainland China who are interested to obtain Bulgarian citizenship. Could you please let us know more details about the terms, timing and cost to obtain citizenship for our clients? Could clients with different nationalities face different waiting times?

    The interest from Russia, mainland China and Hong Kong for Bulgarian citizenship is indeed very high. The cost of the program can be indeed different for clients from different countries. The same applies to the waiting times. The Bulgarian CBI program requires an investment of 1,024,000 euros in Bulgarian Eurobonds or listed shares. Citizenship can be applied for as soon as 12 months after the permanent residence status has been granted. The permanent residence status can be applied for immediately after the first 50% of the required investment amount has been effected.
