If youโ€™re in Sofia at a reasonable hour stop at The Little Things and try the pesto pasta
it haunts me
๐Ÿคฃ I will google that +1skin-tone-2grin
Not there, but have suggestions for cool places if you'd like
bpvptvfsy Great idea, Iโ€™ll do that. Thank you ๐Ÿ™
kfhzctnpllrb Thanks mate, I appreciate it. Think this is the way Iโ€™m going to go, through Greece
Yes, sure. Why not?!
Just saw pictures of borovec, and it's so beautiful!!

Sense Hotel Sofia

Rooftop with a great vie

I know someone from the US who got deported three weeks ago when trying to enter Sofia from just three days in BCN. Vaccinated and still was sent back. I wouldnโ€™t try it unless you go somewhere else first.
We came from Dubai to Bulgaria unvaccinated with negative pcr tests on July 21
Hi, can you please recommend a restaurant with a view in/around Bansko where we can be seated outside?
Hey howvisvrpr still in the city?
No just arrived in Zagreb
Finally made it to Bansko
Did you need to quarantine in Sofia ?
Only if you're arriving from a red list country,of which Indonesia is not at this moment
I did not
I just spent a week there just for fun
4 Directions
Are borders open to non EU Citizens now?
Things are changing every day. I always check on|this website>, which should be helpful to you.
Bulgaria is easy to enter unless you are coming from a red list country| has the list and details
ah nice!
ok then ill plan a trip then
What's the best time to go to bansko for skiing? I want to go for a month to learn it.
If I could only pick one month, Iโ€™d pick March
tends to get heavier snow but not too cold
hey all. Does anybody have a contact for an apartment in Bansko?
I do!
Hey kbneppweuv thank you!
I was able to get my first vaccine shot here in Bansko today
muah I assume you are also a tax resident, right. I wonder are you required to live a certain time of the year in Bulgaria? Thanks ๐Ÿ™
tiuxufvqnfbg I am thinking about it as well.. are you required to stay in the country like half the year or something like that? thanks ๐Ÿ™
Residency doesnโ€™t require you to stay anywhere. This is different from tax residency
I see.. do you know how is it for tax residency by any chance?
Itโ€™s complicated
๐Ÿ›ฌ jkmcznzt just arrived in ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฌ Plovdiv, #bulgaria
what was the procedures? Do you think I can take it in Sofia as well?
I would say thatโ€™s less likely
Bulgaria right now does not offer it to foreigners. The last time they opened up to foreigners, it was EU only
but it seems like thereโ€™s a bit of discretion given to the doctors. Dr Terziev in bansko seems to err on the side of giving out more than the government would otherwise prefer
He has said no to people, whoโ€™ve then gone off to Croatia to get it, so Iโ€™m assuming thereโ€™s some external factor. Maybe he can only get away with a few non-bulgarians a month
I wouldnโ€™t guarantee you can get it here, but it is possible
As far as procedure goes โ€“ I went in, they asked if it was my first or second, then asked if I had bulgarian ID. I said no, and that I was from Canada, and the nurse went to speak with the doctor. A few minutes later she came back and told me to fill out the paperwork (one page) and then took my passport
The shot took a minute, then they gave me my certificate and passport, and said to wait ten minutes before leaving
It was as easy an experience as Iโ€™ve ever had at a health facility
No Iโ€™m not a tax resident of Bulgaria. Just have a business registered there. As an individual I donโ€™t get any special rights.
As far as I know.
I see, thanks anayway!
Which vaccines do they have?
Modern and Pfizer
๐Ÿ›ฌ xjnorptbos just arrived in ๐Ÿ‚ Bansko, #bulgaria
Has anybody done a month or longer stay in Bansko, and if so, what's your opinion?
It's great here
I spent three months in the winter snowboarding
I've been here for two weeks now and will be for another month
I'll be back in January too
u really love this city HAHAHA
Hi, I just arrived in Bulgaria. Do you know any good community / coworking space to settle in Bulgaria and which could help me create my company here? (besides in Sofia and Bansko, because I am not too fond of big cities and Mountains. I love cities like Plovdiv and cities close to the sea much better).

If not, does anyone have real experience incorporating in Bulgaria?

Thanks a lot!
Sofia and Bansko are the only real options for community
Coworking Bansko has a helpful wiki that includes two references for starting a business here
I know people who have used both
So, I plan on being in Bansko from early September until mid October. Can anybody tell me what percentage of businesses accept cards, and what businesses only accept cash? Also, if anybody wants to meet up or go for a hike or something while I'm there, I'm down.
Thx U01CCV6SPS6. Do you (or anyone else) have any personal experience with co/company?
Keep some cash on you but you can expect to use your card almost everywhere
Exactly right. I also heard today that the cash registers work in a way that makes it difficult to change from paying in cash to paying in card once the receipt is issued. So in a restaurant etc. specify you want to pay by card when asking for the billโ€ฆ.
I have never not been asked whether I'm paying by cash or card when I ask for the bill
Except last winter when restarants weren't suposed to be open and then it was cash only

Just got my second vaccine dose so in two weeks Iโ€™m street legal
Bulgaria is vaccinating tourists? Or are you a resident U01CCV6SPS6?
interesting. thx for the info.
Hey all ๐Ÿ‘‹ Me and my Estonian friend are spending the next few days in Sofia and then Bansko before van tripping around Bulgaria. ๐Ÿš We'd love to meet up with a nomad or two in each city to find out more what it's like to live here. We're both tech startup people. ะะฐะทะดั€ะฐะฒะต! ๐Ÿป
As a start, join this Facebook group
There are other groups as well, but this will give you a flavour.
Awesome! Thanks for the link. :)
Not even Plovdiv?

Hey, does any one know how can a tourist can get a vaccine in Bulgaria. Tried the government hospitals and they said no. What shall we do? Any suggestions?
Try calling or stopping by the Tokuda Hospital. It's a private hospital and they might just do it for you.
xyqfhfcpxns thanks trying that now
You're welcome. Glwi
Well called them and they are asking for a residence card. Without it they are not giving the vaccination.
Try Croatia. I know that they were vaxxing tourists last month, and itโ€™ll be easy to get to from Albania.
Okay , will try. Thanks a lot ๐Ÿ‘
tccughrnhrxe From a bulgarian vaccines fb group Paradise center mall was mentioned the most often as a place that vaccinates foreigners without residency. Someone also mentioned Sofiamed. If they say they cannot issue you a certificate, tell them in drop down menu where they choose between tax number or ID number, there is also an option called โ€œotherโ€ and they can fill in your pasport number choosing it. That is a doctorโ€™s explanation, who has vaccinated foreigners in Varna.
Alexandrovska and Pirogov hospital (both govermental) were also mentioned as places who have previously vaccinated foreigners without local tax number/residency. It might be a matter of who is at work and how well they know the system.
