Requirements for Entry into Bulgaria from Malta
To enter the territory of the Republic of Bulgaria, you will be required to present one of the following documents:
- a negative result of a PCR test conducted up to 72 hours before entry into the country or a negative result of a rapid antigenic test carried out within 48 hours.
- a document confirming the completion of a full 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 11 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.
Malta has been classified as an Orange country by the Bulgarian government. This means that holders of a valid EUDCC (EU Digital Covid Certificate) can enter Bulgaria without being subject to quarantine, but they may be randomly tested upon arrival.
Bulgarian citizens and persons with permanent or long-term residence in Bulgaria (including their family members), who do not present a valid EUDCC or a similar document, must undergo a 10-day quarantine. Quarantine may be revoked upon submission of a document showing a negative PCR or Rapid Antigen test taken within 24 hours from entering the country.
Children up to the age of 12 do not need to submit any COVID-19 documents.
