MPs from VMRO party, which is part of the ruling coalition, announced a legislative initiative for introducing a new kind of identity document for people of Bulgarian origin living abroad.

All persons of Bulgarian origin living outside the country who do not have Bulgarian citizenship will be able to apply for the “Bulgarian card”, as it will be called. The document would only be valid on the territory of Bulgaria and would give the holder the same rights as Bulgarian citizens, such as the right to vote, for example. The legislative initiative aims to help mainly persons of Bulgarian origin who live in Ukraine, Moldova, North Macedonia, Albania, Serbia, but other countries as well.
