Bulgaria’s Foreign Ministry has said that Ukraine has moved Bulgaria to its list of safe countries, which means that arrivals from Bulgaria will no longer need to present a negative coronavirus PCR test upon arrival.
Similarly, arrivals will not be required to quarantine for a period of 14 days after entering the country. The only requirement for arrivals is to have a valid insurance policy, the ministry said in a statement.
The decision was made by Ukraine’s Health Ministry on August 14.
Last month, Bulgaria’s Health Ministry eased travel restrictions on non-essential travel from a number of countries, Ukraine included, and dropped the mandatory quarantine requirement. Two weeks later, however, the ministry changed its rules, requiring arrivals from Ukraine to submit a negative PCR test result.
