How to get your Bulgarian ID card?
EU citizens can apply for a permit for long-term residence and Bulgarian ID card. To stay in the Republic of Bulgaria on a short term or permanent basis, you have to register with the local Migration Office. The registration is required if you want to apply for family reunification in Bulgaria.


EU citizens wishing to apply for a Bulgarian ID card need to provide the following:

  • Address Proof – Your property deed or lease agreement;
  • Financial Means – A bank statement to show that you have enough funds to support your stay in Bulgaria without relying on the Bulgarian Social security;
  • Health Insurance – You can show your EHIC card (European Health Insurance card) or purchase a health insurance from a local or international Insurance company;
