Amid the surge in the Covid-19 cases, Bulgaria has introduced ease in the travel restrictions of the country. The Bulgarian authorities have announced to relax the PCR test reports requirements for the people arriving in the nation.

Indeed, this has given hope to tourism-related business owners from the northwestern province of Edirne. The province has been expecting to witness a massive inflow of tourists from neighbouring countries, especially Bulgaria.

These restrictions were, reportedly, supposed to be imposed from February 1, Tuesday. From today, passengers entering in Bulgaria have to show a vaccine card or a negative PCR test report, within 48 to 72 hours before the country.

According to the early restrictions, passengers flying from Turkey to Bulgaria or vice-a-versa have to undergo Covid-19 testing every time they travel. The decision was taken amid the continuous rise in Covid-19 cases, across the country.

During that time, the authorities also announced to make carrying a vaccine card compulsory and PCR test must be done while entering the Balkan nation.

Following the introduction of the rule, various Bulgarians, spending their time in Turkey, plunged and came back to their country, as the PCR test was both costly as well as inconvenient while travelling between two countries.

On weekends for shopping and overnight stays, as many as 10,000 Bulgarians visited the Turkish province before the tighter PCR rule was implemented by the government, and after the rule was implemented, the count of visitors was decreased to just 3,000.

Now, as Bulgaria has eased the restrictions, the businessmen must have taken a sigh of relief.

The owner of a dessert shop in Edirne stated that this development would be wholeheartedly welcomed as the reason behind the good business is the customers flying from Bulgaria. The shop owner said, “Everything was fine till the end of last year until the new travel rules were imposed by the authority”.
