The Bulgarian government designated border checkpoints on Bulgarian territory through which the unobstructed passage of commodities will be ensured.

The plan to provide “green corridors” along the European road network was put forward by the minister of transport, information technology and communications in compliance with the European Commission guidelines. On the border with Greece the principal checkpoints designated are Kulata, Kapitan and Petko Voivoda, and Ilinden as backup. The principal checkpoints with Romania are the checkpoints at Vidin and Rouse, with Oryahovo and Silistra as backup.

The points of passage along the borders with the countries of the Western Balkans and Turkey have also been set down with regard to which the EU has also taken action for a coordinated approach. Kalotina is the designated border checkpoint between Bulgaria and Serbia, Kapitan Andreevo between Bulgaria and Turkey, and Gyueshevo – on the border with North Macedonia. Passage across these “green corridor” border checkpoints, including all kinds of checks and health examinations of transport workers, should not exceed 15 minutes along internal land borders. “Green corridor” border passages must be open to all goods vehicles transporting all kinds of commodities.
