At the moment you are allowed to stay in Bulgaria for 90 days without any form of residency at all, Before your 90 days are up you are required to obtain residency through the immigration service which in Yambol is located next to the main police station across from the new shoppping mall.
The documents required to pobtain this residency are as follows

proof you are living in Bulgaria ie company documents
or if you are in rented accomodation a copy of your rental agreement signed by your landlord.
EHIC card -translated and notorised
Your passport
A declaration from your bank that you have a Bulgarian bank account (THIS IS NOT A BANK STATEMENT)
You also have to have a seperate bank account for each of you so you both need the declaration.

You then go along to the immigration office and start your registration, this will take probably no longer than a few hours and should cost under 10 leva.
it is wise to take a interpreter with you although you can manage it on your own it's just a bit more stresssful.

There is actually plans to withdraw the need for residency cards in the future but hey ho this is Bulgaria so who knows when that might happen.

When we applied in Veliko Turnovo we didn't have to have the EHIC card translated and notarised. Surely this is an EU flagged card? However, as ever, rules are interpreted in different ways in various areas although VT is usually the strictest. Also, if you have a partner and you are not married they will have to appear on the Company documents maybe as a Manager.

In Yambol too they don't ask for a EHIC and it takes 30mn, I help people to do it all the time.

Golly gosh poor Mr Oddy had a dreadful time when he tried to get the id cards at Silistra Immigrations office - He was visiting on his own and the translator went with him to the office. They were not in the least helpful to the translator and told them that they can only provide cares when we are both in the country - come back next year.

I suppose we will have to tackle this at some stage in the future [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Bulgaria moves to ease property qualification for permanent residence

Sofia, May 25, 2016/Independent Balkan News Agency

By Clive Leviev-Sawyer of The Sofia Globe

A Bulgarian parliamentary committee has approved the first reading of changes to the Foreigners Act to decrease the property value ownership qualification for permanent residence from 600 000 leva (about 300 000 euro) to 100 000 leva.

The change is being proposed to make matters easier for the many Russian citizens buying property at the Bulgarian Black Sea coast, in the cities of Varna and Bourgas and surrounding areas, reports from the committee meeting said.

The proposed decrease of the sum required to qualify for permanent residence in Bulgaria was proposed by the Cabinet and has the support of the Interior Ministry’s Migration Directorate.

Those who had bought property had invested in Bulgaria and daily were supporting the country’s economy, the directorate said, according to a report in daily Sega.

Foreigners who have the status of long-term residents in the country have all rights and obligations of Bulgarian citizens except those for which Bulgarian citizenship is required, such as voting and standing in elections. They can be employed by Bulgarian employers and obtain social insurance.

The proposal at the meeting of the National Assembly committee on internal order and security had wide support, though no MPs from the opposition parties the Movement for Rights and Freedoms or Ataka were present, while the opposition Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP) abstained.

BSP MP Krassimir Yankov said that such a drastic lowering of the threshold for investing in property could seriously change the profile of foreigners in the resort areas and bring people from risk countries to Bulgaria. These concerns were not accepted by MPs from other parliamentary groups.

Further changes to the Foreigners Act envisage a requirement that foreigners with long-term residence in Bulgaria who have a business in Bulgaria will have to create at least 10 full-time jobs for Bulgarians. The law currently has a requirement along these lines, but without specifying the type of employment.

Other changes envisage changing the deadline for a natural or legal person who provides accommodation to a foreigner to notify the Interior Ministry and municipal authorities within three days instead of the current five days.

The Cabinet also has proposed an entirely new provision regarding the status of foreigners without citizenship, meaning stateless persons, staying in the country. The proposal is to deny residence status to people who deliberately do not declare their citizenship in order to obtain residence.

Foreigners may get permission to stay in the country under the Bulgarian Citizenship Act. This allows a foreigner to apply for citizenship if the foreigner already has permanent residence and places at least a million leva capital in a Bulgarian company or increases his or her investments in Bulgaria to a minimum two million leva.
