The requirement for a 14-day quarantine for arrivals has been dropped


Starting July 16, all persons arriving from the following third countries can enter Bulgaria without a 14-day quarantine and PCR test: Iceland, the Kingdom of Norway, Switzerland, the Principality of Liechtenstein, the Republic of San Marino, the Principality of Andorra, the Principality of Monaco and the State State Vatican, Algeria, Australia, Canada, Georgia, Japan, Morocco, New Zealand, Rwanda, Republic of Korea, Thailand, Tunisia, Eastern Republic of Uruguay and Ukraine.
A PCR test is not required for people arriving in our country from EU member states (except Sweden and Portugal), the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, as well as countries under the Schengen Agreement. They are not subject to 14-day quarantine.

All arrivals from Sweden and Portugal, as well as from all third countries, except those listed above, upon entering Bulgaria must submit a document confirming the negative result of a PCR test conducted 72 hours before entering the country. Citizens who do not provide such a document will be under quarantine for 14 days.

Citizens of Northern Macedonia, Turkey, Albania, Kosovo, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro can transit through Bulgaria to return to the country of which they are citizens.

The same applies to third-country nationals who have a long-term residence permit in a Member State of the European Union, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland or in a Schengen country and their family members.

The directors of the regional health inspectorates quarantine those who arrived in Bulgaria between 2.07.2020 and 15.07.2020 from the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
