The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Bulgaria by default publishes warnings for refraining from travelling only to regions where there are military operations (wars or civil wars in a particular country), with actual general security threat.
Publishing a general warning for travellers does not rest on any tragic events, rather on the evaluation of the general situation in the region, the state respectively, according to the available information that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has.
The partial warning for travellers applies only for a particular region in a specific country, rather than for the whole country.
Through the e-services system of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Bulgarian citizens who live outside the Republic of Bulgaria and want to renew their personal documents may submit an electronic application and pay electronically for this service. The receipt of the completed documents shall be made at a consular office of their choice under their chosen delivery conditions.
