Bulgaria: RKI declares Bulgaria as a high incidence area from 21 March

Datum: 19. März 2021 21:16

On Friday (19 March), the Robert Koch Institute declared Bulgaria a high incidence area with effect from 21 March. The country was previously considered a risk area.

 Returnees from risk areas are generally required to undergo 10 days of home isolation immediately upon arrival at their destination and must be tested for COVID-19 within 48 hours of entry (see Federal Foreign Office website). Self-isolation can be ended prematurely at the earliest 5 days after entry by the negative result of a new COVID-19 test. When entering from high incidence areas, proof of a negative test result or a corresponding medical certificate must already be available at the time of departure and presented to the carrier upon request. The test must have been taken no more than 48 hours prior to the time of entry. There are exceptions for transit passengers, freight transport, cross border commuters (among others) who come from risk areas as well as from high incidence areas, but not for travellers from the so-called virus variant areas.
