The amount of money sent by Bulgarians abroad to their home country has decreased significantly. According to data of the Bulgarian National Bank, in the first two months of 2021 Bulgarians abroad sent only EUR 24.8 million to Bulgaria. In the same period last year, the money sent by Bulgarians abroad was 8 times higher and amounted to EUR 198.2 million. Before the Covid-19 pandemic, Bulgarians abroad used to send between EUR 80 million and EUR 100 million a month to their families in Bulgaria.

The negative trend began in the spring of 2020. In 2020, Bulgarians abroad transferred a total of EUR 358.9 million to their home country, while in 2019, they sent a record-high amount of money to Bulgaria-EUR 1.2 billion.
