As of 4:00 a.m. on January 7, 2022, Britain is introducing a change in the regime of entry into the country for arrivals from countries outside the red list, including Bulgaria at the moment.

According to our embassy in London, the requirement to present a coronavirus test performed before entering the country for all vaccinated citizens, as well as for those under 18 years of age, is no longer required.

The requirement for a negative Covid-19 test result remains valid until two days after arrival in England. After 4:00 a.m. on January 9, 2022, this test will be able to be antigenic, and not as before only PCR test.
