The Bulgarian Foreign Ministry provided Bulgarians, who are currently in Nepal and would like to leave the earthquake-stricken country, with an opportunity for an evacuation.

Bulgarians wishing to evacuate could do so by boarding a Spanish airplane, which will take off from the airport in Kathmandu on Wednesday at 8:00 a.m. local time.

Those wanting to evacuate have to be present at terminal 3 of the airport at 6:30 a.m. local time at the latest, the ministry's press service informs.

Before evacuating, Bulgarians have to inform the Bulgarian embassy in Delhi or the Situation centre directorate of the ministry before 20:30 Bulgarian time on Tuesday.

They have to provide their three names and passport numbers to the Bulgarian authorities, while they will need a passport or another document proving their identity in order to board the plane.
