Covid-19 and Travel Situation in Bulgaria

Summer 2022: From May 1-st Bulgaria welcomes tourists without any covid-restrictions. We look forward to welcoming you back to Bulgaria!

As per a statement from the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) Bulgaria is part of the tourism destinations with safety and hygiene travel stamps. Safe Travel stamp allows differentiating destinations with enhanced standards for safe travel. Bulgaria is following WHO (World Health Organization) and ECDC (European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control) guidance on threat mitigation.

Travel and excursions are an important part of everyone's life. There is no reason to worry about choosing Bulgaria for your summer destination. Fresh air, pure nature, and relaxation on the beach are recommended to improve physical and mental health. In Bulgaria, we are happy and lucky to have at our disposal green mountains, clean rivers, flower fields, natural parks, and the sea in one place.
