Registering your residence when abroad

You must register your residence within 3 months of arrival.

To register your residence you should go to:

Inactive citizens (pensioners, self-sufficient persons) must present the following documents as proof of sufficient resources:

  • Proof that they receive a pension and that they have a bank account in Bulgaria
  • Proof that they are financially independent - this is considered as having a monthly income equal to the national minimum wage per month.

You must carry your registration certificate at all times. If you don't, you could incur fines.

If you don't register your residence, you could incur fines of between 50 and 300 BGN.
