Practical Information

Requirements for staying in Bulgaria (entry visa regime)
According to the Bulgarian legislation every foreigner must have a valid passport or other document of identity upon entering the country.
No entry visas are required for citizens of the states-members of the European Union. Prospective students from non-EU countries are advised to visit the Internet site of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Bulgaria (www.mfa.government.bg) in order to be sure whether an entry visa is required in their case, or to apply directly to the respective Bulgarian Embassy or Consulate abroad. Within 24 hours from their arrival to Bulgaria foreign citizens must register at the Foreign Citizens Passport Office (48, Maria Louisa Blvd, Sofia) in case they have not been accommodated in a hotel.
