These two representations make regional distinctions in D visa applications. In other words, a person residing in Istanbul cannot apply from the Consulate of Bulgaria in Edirne. It is required to apply from İstanbul to the Consulate of Bulgaria in Istanbul.

On the day of the appointment, you will take your paperwork and hand it over to the Bulgarian Consulate or Embassy. Visa authorities may request additional documents from you if they seem it necessary. The only decision maker for visa applications is the Bulgarian Foreign Ministry.

What is the next phase after D visa application?

D visa applications are completed in approximately 45-60 days. This process may be prolonged because of the public holidays and intensity of the Consulate or Embassy.

The second stage will start for the investor whose D visa has been issued. The person must go to Bulgaria and apply for Residence Permit to the Foreigners Department of the Police Headquarters to which his residence address is attached. A residence permit may be issued for a period of 3 -6 or 12 months.

A person who has been residing in Bulgaria for 5 years can obtain an indefinite residence permit at the end of this period. It is also entitled to apply for Bulgarian citizenship. It applies for citizenship to the General Directorate of Citizenship of the Ministry of Justice. These procedures may result in approximately 6-18 months.

  • Since Bulgaria is an EU member, a person with Bulgarian citizenship has the right to live and work all over Europe and Schengen member countries.
