The definition of accepted Investment in the Program for Residency and Citizenship in Bulgaria is granted by the Investment Encouragement Act of Republic of Bulgaria and the Regulations for implementation thereof. To that effect, investors who through the business immigration program, wish to obtain Permanent Residence Permit, issued by the Ministry of Interior need first to qualify for a Certificate of the Ministry of Finance confirming a foreign direct investment of 1,000,000 BGN (€ 511,292) in accepted Governmental Bond Portfolio.
There is a strict statutory procedure to be followed in order to obtain that Certificate in regards of Source and origin of the funds as well as the allowed financial transactions. Arton Capital Bulgaria is authorized to advise and execute every step of these financial procedures. In addition, and to respond to the demand of applicants seeking to retain maximum capital for investment in their ongoing business operations, we have created through partnerships with the best local and foreign financial institutions, a convenient Financed Investment option. For a set fee of pre paid interest our clients can choose to leverage their capital investment over the five-year maturity allowing delivery of the same investment certificate for residency over the five years, risk free. In order to comply to the set procedures by the law, Arton Capital offer the following options for the qualified investors in the program:
The investor deposits the full amount of 1,000,000 BGN (€ 511,292) from outside of Bulgaria into the Governmental Bond Portfolio. No further payment is required. At the end of the five year period, the amount of € 511,292 Euros is returned to the investor with no accrued interest. The investment is fully guaranteed and secured by the government.
The investor pays a reduced amount of € 180,000* Euros. No further payment is required by the investor and nothing is returned to the investor at the end of the five year period. The reduced amount is used to finance a € 511,292 Euros closed five-year term loan from a chartered Bulgarian bank.
* Applicants who select the Financed Investment Option will have to demonstrate net worldwide assets of more than €1,000,000. This is a requirement of the Bulgarian chartered bank.
