Daily subsistence allowances for drivers conducting international cargo services will increase from EUR 27 to EUR 50. This is envisaged by amendments to the Ordinance on Business Travel and Specialization Abroad, published for public discussion. When the crew consists of two drivers, the subsistence allowance increases from EUR 21 to EUR 45 per day.

Subsistence allowances for drivers have not seen an increase since 2007, which has made Bulgarian companies uncompetitive on the EU market. The change also meets the requirements of the Mobility Package Directive. There are over 30,000 Bulgarian drivers conducting international cargo services. According to the industry, the shortage in drivers is estimated to be about 5,000.
