Requirements for Entry into Bulgaria from Malta
To enter the territory of the Republic of Bulgaria, you will be required to present the negative result of a PCR test conducted up to 72 hours before entry into the country or a rapid antigen test conducted up to 48 hours before entry into the country.
Vaccinated travelers may instead choose to present a document confirming the completion of a vaccination course against COVID-19, which is reached after 14 days from the last scheduled dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. The document must contain the names of the person, date of birth, dates of the relevant doses of vaccine, trade name and batch number of the COVID-19 vaccine, name of the manufacturer/holder of the market authorisation, country where it was administered and name of the issuing competent authority.
A document showing a positive result of a PCR or rapid antigen test for COVID-19 for persons who have recovered from COVID-19 between 15 and 180 days from the date of the positive result to the test will also be accepted. The document must contain the names of the person, details of the medical establishment that carried out the examination (name, address or other contact details), the date on which the test was carried out, and positive result.
If you enter the country without a PCR test, you will be asked to quarantine for 10 days.
