The Bulgarian government has approved the legislation implementing the Withdrawal Agreement and the Migration Authorities are now processing applications for the new permits for UK nationals and their family members. 

The AIRE Centre is here to help UK nationals in Bulgaria secure their residence status now that the UK has left the EU. If you require assistance with this process, contact us at [email protected]

We are also operating a phone helpline for those who do not have access to emails or the internet between 3:30pm and 6:30pm local time Monday, Wednesday and Friday. If you or anyone you know is in this situation, please call +359 2906 0713



Information Sheets

We are producing a series of information sheets designed to provide practical information to UK nationals seeking to secure their residence in Bulgaria. We want these sheets to be as helpful as possible and want to know if they have supported you in obtaining a residence permit or if they have assisted you to help someone else do so. Please help us to improve our service by giving us feedback on these resources HERE
