If you would like to register your car as a personal asset, you will need to obtain Bulgarian residence for EU nationals.

The car is purchased by way of an agreement for purchase and sale, which needs to be certified by a local notary public. The taxes and charges for signing the agreement for sale and purchase before the notary public amount to approximately 2,5% from the specified value of the vehicle. If the sum of the transaction exceeds 15000 BGN, the payment has to be made only as a bank transfer. After signing the agreement for sale and purchase all documents of the vehicle have to be handed over to the purchaser.

If the vehicle is imported from another EU member state, the sale contract does not need to be attested by a notary public and there are no related notary fees.
