Another “beach” country, popular with Russian tourists, has abandoned the “antique” measures at the border. The truth is that tourists will have to get there “on the way”. We are talking about Bulgaria – from May 1, all measures of “coronavirus security” at the entrance will be canceled in the country – tourists do not need any vaccination certificates, no certificates, no tests – all protocols have been canceled.
Note that the emergency regime the situation in the country as a whole has been canceled since April. This also applies to the mask mode and other restrictive measures.
Another good news for tourists is that despite the fact that Bulgaria is at the forefront of anti-Russian cancellations and sanctions, the country does not mind making money on tourists and it still issues visas, including for tourists, though with some difficulties. So, since March 25, visa centers do not accept applications with payment of the consular fee, and ordinary tourists are not included in the categories exempted from paying the fee. However, you can apply for a visa to Bulgaria by personally applying to the consulates in Moscow, Yekaterinburg and St. Petersburg, you can also apply for a visa through accredited tour operators. It is also possible to enter on a Schengen or Croatian visa.
As for the routes to Bulgaria, tourists will have to take detours to get there, as well as to all of Europe, since the country closed air traffic with Russia one of the first. However, there are many opportunities – mainly for routes with transfers in Belgrade or Istanbul. From where you can get to the resorts of Bulgaria both by air and by land transport.
