“Ukraine is one of the priority markets for tourism in our country and as a government we take our friendly relations very seriously”. This was stated by the Minister of Tourism Stella Baltova during her meeting with the Ambassador of Ukraine HE Vitaly Moskalenko. She commented that the main task of the official government is for businesses to work calmly in the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as to ease the conditions for entering the country.

Minister Baltova said that according to the latest order of the Minister of Health, citizens of Ukraine can now enter the territory of our country with a negative PCR or antigen test, with a document for completed vaccination scheme or with a document showing a positive PCR test or rapid antigen test - for persons who suffered from COVID-19 for the period from the 15th to the 180th day, as of the date of the study. This means “welcome to Bulgaria”, said Minister Baltova.

The official Minister assured Ambassador Moskalenko that the measures taken in connection with the epidemiological situation are clear and strictly observed. “Our inspections are regular, and the responsibility of the tourism sector is at the highest level”, explained the Minister. She also pointed out the fact that Bulgaria is part of the tourist destinations with a Safe Travels Stamp, issued by the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC). According to her, the Ministry of Tourism is developing a very active digital campaign for the Ukrainian market in social networks, which will be upgraded this summer.

For his part, HE Vitaly Moskalenko thanked Minister Baltova for the meeting and clarified that a large number of tourists from Ukraine want to visit Bulgaria and expressed hope that their number will be higher than last year.
