Bulgaria to issue faster tourist visa for Russians

Bulgaria, as part of providing a flawless tourism service to the neighbouring countries like Russia, has issued a fast processing of tourist visas within 48 hours.

The new policy has been exclusively put forward by Nikolina Angelkova, Bulgarian Tourism Minister in a television interview.

“Turkey is our main rival as its tourist industry has government support and it can make particularly good tourist offers as. We cannot do that but we have been making efforts to keep Russian tourists coming because Bulgaria remains one of the popular destinations among Russian tourists,” said Nikolina Angelkova.

Meanwhile, the Bulgarian Tourism Ministry added additional treasury funds for the Foreign Ministry for speeding up the visa processing. “More diplomatic staffs are arranged to work in Russia whom can issue visas within 48 hours,” added the minister.
