National warning: This advisory covers the whole country.

Brief summary:
Vi fraråder alle ikke-nødvendige rejser til Bulgarien, fordi Bulgarien ikke opfylder kriterierne for lave smittetal i modellen for rejsevejledninger for EU- og Schengenlande. Du kan læse mere hos Statens Serum Institut. Det er bl.a. turistrejser, der anses for at være ikke-nødvendige rejser. Erhvervsrejser anses derimod ofte for at være nødvendige rejser, hvorfor erhvervsrejsende som udgangspunkt godt kan rejse i den aktuelle situation. Det er derfor op til den enkelte virksomhed at vurdere, hvorvidt en rejse er en nødvendig rejse. Vi opfordrer altid virksomheden til at holde sig opdateret om lokale rejserestriktioner i forbindelse med planlægning af erhvervsrejser. Den danske ambassade i Sofia har de seneste oplysninger om lokale restriktioner i Bulgarien. Hvis du vælger at rejse til Bulgarien, bør du altid følge de lokale myndigheders anvisninger. Du bør løbende holde dig orienteret om udviklingen i Bulgarien via den danske ambassade i Sofia, de lokale myndigheder og nyhedsmedierne. Du bør også downloade vores app Rejseklar og tilmelde dig Danskerlisten.  Du bør følge vores rejseråd i en tid med COVID-19 for at minimere risikoen for at blive smittet med coronavirus/COVID-19. Du kan læse mere om coronavirus/COVID-19 hos Sundhedsstyrelsen og Statens Serum Institut. Du bør altid følge Sundhedsstyrelsens råd til forebyggelse af smittespredning.

Note of the displayed travel advisories
These travel advisories are automatically gathered. We use the RSS Feeds of the corresponding authorities of the single countries. In some cases, we analyse the website itself. Since the information originates from different countries and different countries have different understanding of danger and danger levels. Thus, the information displayed is an automized and normalized representation with no right to completeness and correctness. If a country is not shown, it doesn't necessarily mean it's safe. The information shown is a first indicator. Additional remark: the websites address does not endorse the situation of a 'Reisewarnung' (with its name). Often, it's just formal notifications by other countries. These can be the reason a country reaches scores of aorund 2.0 and still be a generally safe country to visit. Lower risk grades are usually no sign of a immanent threat!
