After a massive protest by the country’s hospitality industry and winter resorts, the health ministry has decided to amend the arrival rule, which came into effect on the night of January 17.

On January 14, the Bulgarian health minister Assena Serbezova announced the new rules on the arrivals of non-EU citizens from the countries, classified as the Covid-19 red zones. According to the rules, the arrival of citizens from red-zoned countries was barred in Bulgaria. Only permanent and long-term Bulgarians and citizens from the EU, UK and Switzerland were allowed to arrive in the country.

Bulgaria witnessed a massive outrage by winter resorts and the hotels and restaurants associations on the same day. It sought an endpoint for the country’s winter holiday season because the ministry barred the citizens from the nations, mainly contributing to tourism.
