Bulgaria is an EU country that is often overlooked by tourists. But there are many reasons to explore this country starting with its amazing landscapes, that range from beautiful beaches in the Black Sea to high peaks and lush forests, and ending with the fascinating historical sites you can find everywhere. All in all, Bulgaria is a fantastic country to visit on your next holiday.

To travel to Bulgaria, you’ll need to process some travel documents first. The main travel documents you’ll need to be able to enter Bulgaria hassle-free are your valid passport and the Bulgaria Travel Declaration, a health form introduced by the Bulgarian Government that's aimed at reducing the risks associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.

In this article, we’ll share with you thorough information about the current entry requirements to visit this EU country and a step-by-step process on how to obtain your Bulgaria Travel Declaration online.

What is the Bulgaria Travel Declaration?

It’s a screening travel document that collects information from all international travelers. It is completed online and it has been an important health measure meant to reduce the Coronavirus’s spread within the country. It should only take you a few minutes to complete the application form and you can have it in as fast as 4 hours with iVisa.com.

It is a health form and therefore it doesn’t replace a visa or any other travel authorization. If you need a visa, the immigration officers will ask for it when you enter Bulgaria. The best way to check all your entry requirements to visit Bulgaria is by using our visa checker tool. Go to iVisa.com and enter your home country and destination and we’ll tell you exactly what you need to visit this EU country.

Keep in mind some passport holders will require a paper visa. If that is your case, we suggest you contact your local embassy to obtain it and find out the exact requirements.

After you get your Bulgaria Travel Declaration, you’ll need to print it out and present it to the health authorities at the airport. If you’re fully vaccinated and have a COVID-19 vaccination certificate, we recommend that you bring it along and have it handy to show to immigration officials.
