As of August 11, all passengers arriving in Israel from Bulgaria will be subject to a mandatory 14-day quarantine, regardless of whether they have had Covid-19 or have been vaccinated, Bulgaria’s national information system said on August 5.
The isolation period can be reduced to seven days, after a PCR test which shows a negative result.
The current measures for entering the territory of the State of Israel remain in force.
Travellers to Israel should present a document for coronavirus illness or vaccination, as well as a negative PCR test performed no later than 72 hours before the trip.
On arrival in Israel, they are subject to a second PCR test.
All foreign citizens traveling to Israel must obtain prior permission to enter the country.
