Bulgaria bans UK travellers over COVID concerns

Written by on 16/07/2021

Bulgaria has banned UK travellers from entering the country due to concerns about the growing number of coronavirus cases in Britain.

The decision was made just days before Bulgaria was due to move to the UK’s green travel list at 4am on Monday – meaning quarantine-free travel for passengers arriving in the UK from Bulgaria.

The south-east European nation has put the UK on its high risk “red zone list” along with Cyprus, Spain, Fiji and Kuwait.

It comes as the UK reported more than 50,000 new COVID-19 cases in the latest 24-hour period, the highest number since mid-January.
