Several Countries Have Eased Restrictions for Arrivals from Bulgaria

Turkey, Germany, Denmark and the Czech Republic have, in various ways, eased their rules for arrivals from Bulgaria, according to statements by the Foreign Ministry in Sofia.

The ministry said that according to the regional governor of Edirne, Bulgarian citizens wishing to visit Turkey will now be able to enter the country through the Kapitan Andreevo-Kapakule border checkpoint, either with a certificate of a negative result of a PCR test for Covid-19 or a vaccination certificate issued by Bulgarian authorities.

The vaccination document must certify that at least 14 days have elapsed since the second dose was given.

Bulgarian citizens who have not been vaccinated due to their age (under 18) will be exempted from testing and quarantine if they travel with their families who have a vaccination certificate, the ministry said.

For May 30, the restrictions for those arriving in Germany from Bulgaria by land are being lifted.

This became possible after Germany decided to no longer identify Bulgaria as a risk country, due to the reduced number of cases of Covid-19 infection.

According to Bulgaria's embassy in Berlin, those arriving in Germany by road or rail who have spent the past 10 days only in Bulgaria are no longer required to register electronically, submit a negative test, certificate of completed vaccination or certificate of recovery from the disease, or go into quarantine.

For those arriving by air, electronic registration is no longer required, but the obligation to present a negative test, certificate of completed vaccination or certificate of recovery remains in place.

The document must be presented to the airline before departure. No test is required for children under six years of age.
