​• Bulgarian law provides several options for employers of foreign nationals. Bulgaria is a member of the European Union. Requirements, processing times, employment eligibility and benefits for accompanying family members vary by permit type.
• Visa nationals entering Bulgaria for business visits require a C visa unless they are visa exempt based on their nationality. C visas can be issued for single, double, or multiple entries, and are usually granted with a 180-day validity. Business visitors must limit their stay to 90 days in a 180-day period.
• The main work authorization categories in Bulgaria are the EU Blue Card, for highly skilled, highly educated local hires; the EU Transferee (ICT) Permit, for the transfer of managers, specialists and trainees; and the Combined Work and Residence Permit, for locally hired staff with skills not available in the Bulgarian labor market. Permits can be issued for one to four years, depending on the permit type, and are typically renewable.
