Reliable Information about living and working in Bulgaria

Relocating to and living in Bulgaria necessitates lots of reliable information on different facets of Bulgarian expat life. Many questions come up when living overseas in Bulgaria: ʺAre we, as expats, liable to Bulgarian income tax law?ʺ, ʺIs there an Anglo-American school in Sofia?ʺ, ʺHow to find a trustworthy maid in Sofia?ʺ, or ʺWhat are the requirements to get a Bulgarian residence permit for my wife?ʺ

Looking for so much information on working and living in Bulgaria is rather bothersome and requires a lot of time. The InterNations Expat Guide for Bulgaria is designed to help you and offers trusted information on all issues of interest to expats living in Bulgaria. Various topics are covered in our Bulgaria Expat Guide from health-care, to restaurants & nightlife or housing and household, up to administration & finance. Such characteristic questions that concern expat life abroad as ʺDo I have to learn the Cyrillic alphabet to get by?ʺ will no more remain open.

We certainly do not limit ourselves to Bulgaria, though. Our guide includes many more expat hotspots, with advice ranging from working in USA to live in Japan.
