First, you need to apply to the consulate for a
Visa D, then enter Bulgaria with it, and then
apply for a residence permit at the regional
department of the migration service. The validity
period of such a Visa is 180 days, for a residence
permit you need to apply no later than two
weeks before the end of this period. A residence
permit is issued for a year, in the future it can be
prolonged. To do this, you need to contact the
migration service again with the same package of
documents. This must also be done a maximum
of 10 working days before the end of the term of
legal stay in the country.
The algorithm for obtaining a residence permit is
the same as in other cases:
Passport, valid for at least another 18 months
from the date of filing, a copy of the first spread
and a spread with the stamp of the last entry into
When renewing a residence permit - a copy of a
Completed application form (for visa - with color
photo) or application.
Rental agreement and declaration of address
(documents must be certified by a notary). For
owners - a copy of the title deed.
