To apply for Bulgarian citizenship, you must meet the conditions set by the Republic of Bulgaria and document the requirements. When moving to Turkey, Immigrants had a few documents with them or some of them did not have any documents. They even moved to Turkey even without travel documents. As a consequence we are experiencing difficulties in providing the documents required when applying for citizenship.

You may be a Bulgarian citizen if you are a member of a family that has immigrated or if you have immigrated recently. The most important thing is to find out whether your citizenship right is protected in Bulgarian registrations.

If you have elder family members who have emigrated from Bulgaria to Turkey the date will determine the path to follow and the beginning of the process. The immigration date of individuals even changes the duration of application results. According to the Order of the Ministry of Justice and European Legal Compliance of the Republic of Bulgaria, it is known that if they were immigrated from Bulgaria between 1948 and 1950, their citizenship was preserved. However, it still needs to be determined whether citizenship is protected. If the citizenship right of the person is not protected, the possibility of continuing through legal means should be evaluated.

People who migrated to Turkey in recent history as 1989 has not been removed from the citizenship, their rights are protected. Persons who have not been denatured can apply for a Bulgarian identity card or passport. However, it is necessary to determine whether the citizenship rights of people with immigration dates in 1938, 1951, 1968 and 1978 are protected or not. You can make the necessary applications if the person is a citizen.
