Bulgaria currently does not have a Bulgaria Digital Nomad Visa, but digital nomads and freelancers can benefit from the Freelance Professional Foreigners visa, also known as the Type D Visa.
Every non-EU citizen can work and reside as a freelancer in Bulgaria given that the respective approval has been given by the Bulgarian Employment Agency. The residence permit on the grounds of freelancing is for an initial period of 1 year, and you can extend it for another year.
The application for issuing a long-stay visa is submitted only in the diplomatic and consular missions at the permanent place of residence of the applicant or the missions accredited in the state of the applicant’s permanent residence. Persons staying legally in a third country, different from the country of their permanent residence, may, as an exception, apply in this third country after explaining the reasons thereof and if their return to the state of permanent residence is guaranteed.
The executive director of the National Employment Agency takes a decision within 30 days from the submission of the documents.
