I hold an Iranian passport. I live in Turkey on a one-year tourist visa. Besides, I have a minimum money to buy Bulgarian government bonds to get permanent residency leading to the citizenship (which is about 500k Euro).
There is a problem that I do need your helps, please:
There is no government-official website for 'Bulgarian Citizenship by Investment'. And, the people working in Bulgarian embassy in Turkey don't know about such a program though they didn't deny its existence either (they told me that I will get better information when I am in Bulgaria. BUT there are many many websites telling the same requirements for getting that permanent residency which makes me believe that it is not a scam.
On the other hand, I hold a politically weak passport with weak circumstances for a tourist-visa-applicant i.e. I don't work and I don't study and the like so have not a strong proof of leaving Bulgaria after visiting (though I don't want to leave if I can extend my stay legally).
PS there is no as 'low'-minimum required investment in EU as Bulgarian Bond Program leading to citizenship esp without language test which I will not be obliged to make a huge donation (like Malta). Otherwise my aim to get residency/citizenship of any EU country. Thanks!
