The first foreign tourists for the summer season have arrived on the Bulgarian southern Black Sea coast. With two charter flights from Tel Aviv, 214 Israeli citizens arrived and were officially welcomed at Burgas Airport. They are accommodated in several hotels in the largest resort complex in this country - Sunny Beach. Israeli tourists arrived in Bulgaria with negative PCR tests and vaccination certificates.

Tour operators from Israel started reservations after the order of the Minister of Health to open casinos at 50-percent capacity.
