Permanent Residence by Origin

If you have Bulgarian origin and you have obtained a certificate of Bulgarian origin from the State Agency for Bulgarians Abroad, but you have failed your Bulgarian citizenship by origin application because you cannot provide sufficient evidence of your origin or for any other reason, you still may obtain Bulgarian permanent residence.

The residence permit application should be submitted no later than 2 months before the expiration of your Visa D granted on your Bulgarian origin where applying for the first time. Renewal applications should be submitted no later than 3 months before the expiration of the permanent residence permit.

The interesting here is that after residing physically in the country for 48 months in the last five years on permanent residency, you are eligible to apply for a Bulgarian Citizenship by Naturalization. So, even if your Citizenship by origin application failed, you will be able to apply on naturalization ground next time.
