Applicants choosing this option must deposit BGN 1 million (€511,292) in a Governmental Bond Portfolio for an investment period of five years, with no further payment required. The full amount of BGN 1 million (€511,292) will be returned to the investor without any accrued interest after a period of 5 years. The investment is fully guaranteed by the government bonds.


Applicants may leverage their capital by choosing the Financed Investment option.

This loan is initiated and repaid at no further cost to the investor. However, applicants will need to demonstrate worldwide assets of more than €1,000,000.
