Introduction

A Bulgarian Passport is an international travel document issued only to citizens of Bulgaria and may also serve as a proof of Bulgarian citizenship.

There are three types of passport: service, diplomatic and regular passports. The service passport is issued to staff of a government entity. Diplomatic passports are issued to high-ranking officials and members of their immediate families. Regular passports are issued to Bulgarian citizens and must be renewed every five years. For non-Bulgarians, it is necessary to become a legal citizen of Bulgaria before obtaining a Bulgarian passport.
