The United States is considering including Bulgaria in a program that will allow its citizens to visit the country and stay in the United States for up to 90 days without requiring visas.

This was reported by Reuters, citing a statement by US Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Majorcas. According to him, the program provides significant benefits to the economy and security of the United States.

Apart from Bulgaria, the other three countries to be decided are Israel, Cyprus, and Romania.

In order to participate in the program, the country concerned must meet certain requirements related to counter-terrorism, law enforcement, document security, and border management.

Currently, 40 countries are included in the list of Washington, and visas for their citizens are not required for a stay of up to three months.
