IRB – Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada (Author)
An official from the Embassy of Bulgaria in
Ottawa stated during an 18 December 1996 telephone interview that a
child born in Bulgaria in 1991 of a Bulgarian mother and a foreign
father is a Bulgarian citizen.
The attached section on Bulgaria in the
March 1996 issue of the Council of Europe's European Bulletin
on Nationality provides information on children's acquisition
of Bulgarian citizenship.
This Response was prepared after
researching publicly accessible information currently available to
the DIRB within time constraints. This Response is not, and does
not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular
claim to refugee status or asylum.
