General travel advice

My experience from four trips, so far in 2021: Order the testing kits required for when you return back (“Day 2” tests) well in advance. You need the reference number for the passenger locator form.

Load up your vaccination certificate or proof of recovery AND your covid test results into your airline boarding pass app. This saves time at check-in

Print out tests and certificates. Whilst not necessary, I have found that looking well organised means a speedy transition through airports.

Check on your government website latest restrictions and requirements for travel. Do this at least a week before travel. Check only official government websites and Facebook pages.

Book your discounted private transfer here on Bansko Blog or in our App. All drivers have been vaccinated. Vehicles deep cleaned after every journey.

If you have either been vexed or recovered from covid then bring two copies of your vaccination certificate (or recovery certificate) and place in plastic folders.

Do your own research. There are increased risks in Bulgaria due to the high rate of infections at time of publishing.
