From October 30, the regulations for the entry of Ukrainians into Bulgaria will be changed—only persons with the status of permanent and long-term residence and their family members will be able to enter the country. According to the Embassy of Bulgaria in Ukraine, this is related to the inclusion of our country in the "red" zone.
These categories of citizens will be able to cross the Bulgarian border if they have one of the following documents:
- valid EU covid certificate confirming two doses of vaccine;
- document confirming that the person has been ill and recovered from COVID-19.
At the same time, Ukrainians will be required to present, along with one of these documents, a negative PCR test result (done 72 hours before crossing the border).
Persons aged between 12 to 18 must also provide the results of PCR testing. Children under the age of 12 can enter Bulgaria without providing the above mentioned documents.
Context. Since October 25, Denmark has simplified the entry regulations for Ukrainians—they can enter the country without having to do a COVID-19 test and self-isolate upon arrival.
