Do I need a visa for Bulgaria?
As a British citizen you don’t need a visa to enter Bulgaria. However, if you have a different type of British nationality, you need to check entry requirements with the Bulgarian Embassy in London before you travel.
If you want to stay in Bulgaria for more than three months, you’ll need to register with the police and apply for a residence permit. You can find more information on how to register and fill in the appropriate documentation at the Ministry of Interior website.
Healthcare in Bulgaria
British citizens should have their free European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) or Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC), which can be used in Bulgaria. This will cover any necessary treatments you may receive at public healthcare centres or hospitals on your trip. However, it’s important to remember to still have travel insurance in place to be able to cover the costs of any unexpected medical treatment the EHIC/GHIC might not cover, including repatriation costs.
