Hotel and restaurant keepers from Sandanski will organize a protest unless the Health Ministry revokes its decision for a PCR test mandate upon entry into Bulgaria from Greece.

The association of local tourist businesses sent an open letter to the President and the Prime Minister demanding that the requirement be lifted for a negative PCR test mandate, including for those who are vaccinated, for arrivals from Greece, Ilia Paskov, chairman of the hotel and restaurant operators in the resort announced.  

The same holds true of hotel and restaurant operators in Ruse on the Danube. “To enter Romania you just need a green certificate, to come back to Bulgaria, you need a certificate plus a PCR test,” Gergana Ilieva from the Bulgarian-Romanian Chamber of Commerce and Industry said for the BNR.
