The Bulgarian Parliament has amended the Foreigners Act, facilitating labour migration and labour mobility. The obligatory study of the labour market by the employer when hiring third-country nationals and offering the job first to Bulgarians, is abolished. Third-country employees may not be more than 20% of a company's staff, and in the case of small and medium-sized enterprises up to 35%.
It is envisaged that the right to enter and reside on the territory of Bulgaria for study and education of third-country nationals may be exercised on the basis of notification by another EU member state and shall not be subject to a permit regime. University students who are third-country nationals and are graduating in Bulgaria are also allowed to stay and work in the country.
