Bulgaria to ease visa issuance for Turkish Tourists

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

bansko skiBansko, ski destination of Bulgaria, attracted great number of Turkish travelers last year and local businesses expect a large part of the bookings for this year's ski season will come from Turkey. This is why hoteliers are demanding from the state to facilitate the access of Turkish citizens to Bulgaria. According to the news at daily Dnevnik, Bulgaria's Tourism Minister Nikolina Angelkova promised to facilitate the procedure on the issuing of visas to Turkish citizens.

The facilitated visa procedure for Turkish tourists will compensate the decrease in the number of Russian visitors to the country.

Angelkova assured that the same visa facilitation procedures, which had been in place for Turkish citizens last year, have been launched.

In addition, the foreign ministry has started a pilot project allowing for online submission of documents, which will further ease Turkish citizens.

The tourism minister revealed that a plan is being developed for restoring the number of Russian tourists.

Russia will be among the countries targeted in the ministry's 2016 promotional campaign, which foresees the launching of more than 100 journalist tours. By inviting foreign journalists to visit the country, the ministry hopes to secure Bulgaria a continuous media presence and more advertisements abroad.
