Bulgarian citizens can travel to the United States, but not through countries of the Schengen zone, Great Britain or Ireland, the US Embassy in Sofia reported. Travelers with a US visa en route to the United States cannot pass transit through airports in the Schengen area, the United Kingdom or Ireland. Crossing the Schengen area restricts travelers, regardless of the fact where their journey started from, the embassy warns.
