The permanent residence permit is issued by the local Migration Offices in Bulgaria. It is very often issued on the base of Bulgarian origins of the applicant, or marital or family relations, or spending 5 years of residence here, the presence of investment intentions/reasons, etc.
The permanent residence permit could be granted also towards foreigners who already have merits towards Bulgaria in the public or economic sphere, in the science, culture or sport.
In some specific case, workers in other countries-members of the EU can receive a long-term residence permit in Bulgaria on labor reasons, and valid for one year, where it could be renewed later. Issuing of “blue card of EU” for labor reasons is also recognized by the Bulgarian legislation. In addition, our country recognizes blue cards, issued by other countries-members of the EU.
Our lawyers can provide advice about the legal requirements before applying for a permanent residence permit in Bulgaria. It should be noted that the local law is very about the particular conditions that have to be matched for issuing such type of residence permit.
The law details also specific reasons why an application for a permanent residence permit may be rejected. These reasons are usually related to economic, medical or criminal issues, connected with the applicant. In cases of eventual refusals by the Authorities for issuing permanent residence permit, we can appeal these on behalf of the applicant in the local Bulgarian court, which is the institution, entitled to hear and decide on this specific type of appeals.
