As of today Bulgarian heavy trucks will pay a 15 euro sanitary fee for entry into Turkey through the Kapikule border checkpoint, said the governor of Edirne, Dursun Ali Şahin, cited by BNR. The fee will be only for Bulgarian trucks. This is the first time when a system of disinfection of vehicles is installed at the Turkish border checkpoint Kapikule. It is claimed that it is a countermeasure against the disinfecting of Turkish trucks conducted at the Bulgarian border checkpoint Kapitan Andreevo, which was cancelled after a scandal, but then resumed again a few months ago.
