Fast Track process for issuing EU Blue Cards

We are happy to share a major milestone in our efforts toward a faster and easier procedure of issuing EU Blue Cards - the Fast Track process was approved by the Council of Ministers and is now official!

Issuing the permits according to this new process will take 4 (four) weeks from the moment of submitting the application form together with the necessary documents to the Ministry of Interior, Migration Directorate.

Overview of the accelerated review process for Blue Card documents

Companies wishing to relocate their employees, subject to the condition of submitting applications for groups of at least 10 employees, should send information in a table in Excel format (template enclosed) by e-mail 2 (two) days before the official submission of the application and the necessary documents in the Migration Directorate at the Ministry of Interior.
The tables with information about the list of job candidates should be sent to the e-mail address: bluecard@mig.gov.bg. Contact person from the company should be stated in the table. If necessary, the institutions involved in the process may contact that person directly for operational purposes.

In order to protect personal data, it is necessary that all tables are password protected. Passwords must be provided in a separate email to the above e-mail address.

After e-mailing the information, the relevant documents and applications for the persons you have indicated in the tables must be entered by the employer or authorized by his face in the Migration Directorate or in the "Migration" department at the regional directorates of the Ministry of Interior.

Upon receipt of a letter of approval that the foreigner is approved, employees must be instructed to visit the consulate as soon as possible and take action to apply for a visa under Art. . 15, para. 1 of the Law on Foreigners in the Republic of Bulgaria.

Companies that need a letter of support should send an email to bluecard@mig.gov.bg with a request to receive a letter of support according to the attached template.
A letter of support on behalf of MIR will be provided electronically, by e-mail, only upon request. This process step is optional and is introduced for companies that need such a document for internal corporate relocation processes.

Inquiries and checks in case of delays in the processing of documents, after the expiration of the 4-week period, should be addressed to bluecard@mig.gov.bg
