MOSCOW, February 9 (Itar-Tass) — Bulgaria introduces visa-free travel for foreigners having Schengen visas from January 31, Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Thursday.
“Bulgaria told the Russian Foreign Ministry that the republic’s government took a decision on January 27 to introduce visa-free entry for foreign citizens, including Russian citizens, who have Schengen visas or a permit to stay in one of the member-countries of the Schengen agreement before Bulgaria joins the Schengen space in full,” Lukashevich said.
“Russian citizens, who have multiple Schengen visas, have the right to enter Bulgaria, leave the country and stay in it for no more than three months within the six-month period, from the first day of their entry, without the Bulgarian visa. Citizens, who have single entry visas, can stay on the territory of Bulgaria within an established period of time,” Lukashevich explained.
The ministry “believes that Bulgaria’s measures will facilitate the development of tourism and business contacts between the two countries”, the diplomat stressed.
