Children aged 12-18 from "red zone" countries to enter Bulgaria only with PCR test from January 19

15.01.2022 / 11:05

As of Wednesday, January 19, children aged 12 to 18 arriving from a red-zone country will be admitted to Bulgaria upon presentation of a negative PCR test conducted up to 72 hours before entering the country. This must be certified by a valid EU digital Covid certificate for research or an equivalent document. This was ordered by the Minister of Health Prof. Asena Serbezova with an order from today.

If they do not present such a document, children aged 12 to 18 are to be placed under a 10-day quarantine. It can be discontinued if the person takes a PCR test no earlier than 72 hours of arrival in the country.

The Ministry of Health reminds that until now children aged 12 to 18 as well as adults arriving from "red zone" countries, when entering Bulgaria, had to provide a negative test result, along with a document for vaccination or illness.

A Covid-19 document is not required for children under the age of 12, regardless of the area they come from.

The list of countries by colour zones has also been updated and will enter in effect on 19 January. The "red zone" includes Austria, North Macedonia, Serbia, Turkey, Hungary, Luxembourg, Israel, Kuwait, Grenada, Greenland, Qatar, Bahrain, Lebanon and Guyana.
