Bulgarian Citizenship with Diplomatic Status

ACS welcomes applications from Bulgarian students with diplomatic status who have been studying in international schools (in Bulgaria or abroad) for at least one year.

In addition to the standard documents required for admission in the International Program at ACS, Bulgarian students with diplomatic status need to provide:

  • All Bulgarian applicants aged 16 and under must provide documents from the Regional Inspectorate indicating the grade level for which they qualify to be admitted.
  • Applicants over the age of 16 may elect to forgo this requirement but must provide a signed declaration from their parents confirming that the student has elected to pursue the International Program only.
  • Applicants must also provide an official letter from the Bulgarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, stating that the parent is a member of the Bulgarian Foreign Service, and is currently a Bulgarian diplomat mandated to work abroad as an employee of the Bulgarian Ministry of Foreign affairs.

The tuition fee for Bulgarian students with diplomatic status, who are admitted to the Bulgarian program of study, is 9,120 Euros for the 2023-2024 academic year. This is an all-inclusive fee for instruction, books and use of all school facilities. It does not include the price of meals at the school, transportation, excursions, school supplies, or other incidental expenses. The tuition fee could be invoiced and paid by a juridical person (legal entity) based on parents’ wish. If the parents wish the tuition fee to be paid by a juridical, an additional trilateral agreement is signed between the parents, ACS, and the company.
