For information on the acquisition of Bulgarian citizenship by a foreign national married to a Bulgarian citizen, please refer to Response to Information Request BGR11806 of 2 October 1992, which is available at your Regional Documentation Centre. Although there is some question about the adoption of new nationality legislation, there is evidence that the legislation has not yet changed (please refer to Response to Information Request BGR15815.E), the information regarding the acquisition of citizenship by virtue of having a Bulgarian spouse appears to still be valid.
This response was prepared after researching publicly accessible information currently available to the DIRB within time constraints. This response is not, and does not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular claim to refugee status or asylum.
