Visa requirements for Russian, Ukrainian and Georgian nationals traveling to Bulgaria will be introduced, starting October 1. The introduction of visa regulations for these countries is according to the commitments Bulgaria made in the process of accession to the European Union and the harmonization of the Bulgarian visa policy with the rules of the Schengen area. The move is based on the decision of Bulgaria`s Council of Ministers, taken on April 2. The Bulgarian Foreign Ministry conducts intensive talks with the foreign policy authorities of Russia, Ukraine and Georgia on the conclusion of new two-way travel agreements. Some of the proposed conditions are for easier business exchange, travel and transport as well as contacts in culture, education, sports and other spheres.
