From Wednesday, January 19, children aged 12 to 18 arriving from the country in the “red zone” are allowed on the territory of Bulgaria upon presentation of a negative result from a PCR test conducted up to 72 hours before entering the country.

This must be certified by a valid EU digital COVID certificate for testing or an equivalent or similar document. This was ordered by the Minister of Health Prof. Asena Serbezova with her order issued today.

If they do not present such a document, they are placed under a 10-day quarantine. Quarantine may be terminated if the person undergoes a PCR test no earlier than 72 hours of arrival in the country.

We remind you that until now it was required that children from 12 to 18 years of age, arriving from the “red zone”, as well as adults, when entering Bulgaria to provide a negative test result, along with a document for vaccination or illness.

COVID-19 documents are not required for children under 12 years of age, regardless of the country of origin.

The list of countries by color zones has also been updated since 19 January. The “red zone” includes Austria, the Republic of Northern Macedonia, Serbia, Turkey, Hungary, Luxembourg, Israel, Kuwait, Grenada, Greenland, Qatar, the Kingdom of Bahrain, the Lebanese Republic and the Cooperative Republic of Guyana.
