Summary/Abstract: The article views three basic problems concerning migration into Bulgaria of people of Bulgarian origins who live outside the political borders of the country: 1.) Quantitative change in migration processes and their periodization; 2.) Law regulations of migration processes; 3,) Consequences of permanent settling of Bulgarians from abroad as to the economic development of Bulgaria and the de-mographical characteristics of its population. For the period 1878-1945 in Bulgaria are observed five major migration periods. The first one covers the years immediately after the fragmentation of Bulgaria in 1878 and the restoring of Macedonia and Thrace as part of the Ottoman Empire. The second period covers 1903 and is related to the suppression of Illinden Uprising. The third one is in 1913 and is related to the defeat of Bulgaria in the war between the Allied Forces. The fourth migration wave comes as a result of WWI and the loss of territories such as: the Aegean, Struma Region, the Western Districts, and Southern Dobrudzha. Besides, according to the clauses of the Peace Treaty Bulgaria was forced to accept an agreement with Greece to accept hundreds of thousands of Bulgarians deported from their native lands — Macedonia and Thrace. The fifth big migration wave starts in 1940 from Northern Dobrudzha and is related to Krajovska Agreement between Bulgaria and Romania. During the whole period under observation a sum total of 1,2 million Bulgarians settle in Bulgaria.
