The European country scraped its policy of “green certificate” from April 1, 2022, but the travellers arriving in Bulgaria were required to present their green pass or certificate, which shows the vaccination status of an individual also whether they contracted the viral disease and a negative test. 

The ones who do not possess a green pass are required to undergo a quarantine period of ten (10) days. This regulation can be lifted if one tests negative for the novel coronavirus after 72 hours of arrival to the Balkan state. 

In addition, Nato military personnel participating in international exercises and multinational contingents and escorting civilians are not needed to show their European Union COVID certificate for vaccination, testing evidence or any other related document.
