Bulgaria: Interest in Bulgarian Citizenship Rises among Britons after Brexit Photo source: mfa.bg

Applications for passports and inquiries about residency have both increased at embassies and high commissions in London in the two months since the UK  voters decided in a referendum to leave the bloc, Bloomberg reported on Monday

The BulgariaEmbassy has been contacted by 30 Britons interested in citizenship, up from negligible interest, the newswire said.

“We usually don’t receive such kind of requests from UK citizens, so this trend has started after the referendum,” Bloomberg quoted Second Secretary Tsvetin Spasov as saying.

Uncertainty over what status the Britons will have after the UK leaves the European Union explains why they are eager to safeguard their rights to work and travel in the bloc,” Bloomberg said

It seems Bulgaria is selling Bulgarian Patriotism.

It seems my Bulgarian Grandfather and Bulgarian Father are turning over in their graves and their "Bloody Asses" are pointed at the Bulgarian Flag.

Do not give away PATRIOTISM.

PATRIOTISM IS SACRED THROUGH BIRTH!
