As of June 1 Bulgaria will introduce blue card for non EU citizens

Every third company in Bulgaria is willing to hire foreign workers to overcome the lack of high qualified specialists, shows a research of the European Institute. The survey was made in regard with the introducing of the so called blue card for non EU citizens.

The identification document should be introduced in the European Union by June 19 and it is aimed at luring specialists as the green card in the USA and Canada. The survey was made among 160 active companies in Bulgaria. 70% of the employers are optimistic about the development of their business and they would need more specialists.

Currently there are vacant positions for high qualified personnel in every second company due to the lack of right candidates. The submitting of applications for blue card might start on June 1, Vladislava Radonova from Migration Department at Bulgarian Interior Ministry said. (Source: Standart Daily)
