Once again, we call on Bulgarian citizens not to travel outside or to Bulgaria, to cancel their already planned trips and to follow the instructions of institutions at home and abroad, to be responsible to themselves, their loved ones and the society.

All compatriots who are abroad or planning a trip are encouraged by the Foreign Ministry to follow the information, warnings and tips that the Foreign Ministry publishes on its website under the special heading "Coronavirus - what to do" as well as to follow and follow the recommendations and instructions of the authorities in the country in which they are located.
