Summary/Abstract: The article studies for the first time the scientific problems on the legal status of the Bulgarians during the Middle Ages, used to live permanently on the territories of other countries for political, economic, military and other reasons and also because of the so called passive emigration. An analysis based on the available historic evidences of the Bulgarians living abroad during the First and the Second Bulgarian Kingdoms has been made. A particular attention is drawn to the texts and other data of the international treaties between Bulgaria and other countries such as the 716 treaty with Byzantium and the Bulgarian-Byzantine treaties concluded by Tzar Simeon the Great (893-927) and Tzar Peter the First (927-969); the treaty between Bulgaria and Dubrovnik (1253), the treaty of 1347 between Bulgaria and Byzantium, the 1387 treaty between the Dobrounja Sovereign Ivanko and Genoa, the Brashov Deed of Tzar Ivan Sratsimir (1356-1396) and other documents. The argumented conclusion of the study is that the legislative system of the status of the Bulgarians living abroad in the Middle Ages was on the level of-the most developed European countries legislative systems.
