From December 1, 2017, Bulgarians are allowed to come to Canada without a visa and stay for up to 6 months. Visa-free travel is good for tourism, business trips, and visiting relatives/friends, but not for work.
The procedure is pretty simple. Before coming to Canada, Bulgarian citizens, who are traveling by air, have to register on the Canadian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in order to get the registration. The fee is 7 Canadian Dollars and the registration is valid for 5 years, which means it doesn’t have to be done before each trip.
However, if a Bulgarian citizen is looking for work permission, the procedure will be more complicated. To learn more, you can order a consultation with our visa specialist.
