For those arriving to Germany from Bulgaria, the requirement for a negative PCR test, electronic registration and quarantine remains in place, the Ministry of Public Health reported.

The requirement to provide a negative PCR test on arrival from Bulgaria to Germany remains in force until 12 May 2021 inclusive, although as of 2 May 2021 Germany has lowered the level of risk for Bulgaria from a country with a high incidence rate of infection to a “risk country”.

According to our embassy in Berlin, the current regimen for entering Germany will apply until May 12

The communication reminds that in addition to providing a negative PCR test, carried out no earlier than 48 hours, registration in the electronic system is required – A 10-day quarantine is also mandatory, and different specificities are possible depending on the regimen valid in individual federal provinces.

Until 12 May 2021, all air travelers to Germany must submit a negative test before boarding a plane.
