“There are Russians by the sea. The Russians have about 100,000 properties along our Black Sea coast. They enter through Turkey, pay serious costs to land in Bulgaria, but still come. The number of Russians who have visited Bulgaria since the beginning of the year is over 60,000 people. Each a tourist is a welcome tourist”, said the acting Minister of Tourism Ilin Dimitrov.

“Until now, the Russians enjoyed one relief, the visa cost them 35 euros, instead of 80 euros, which it costs in principle. This relief will disappear. There is no way to ban Russians from entering, but their visa will become more expensive. This is a decision of the EU, with which we do not fully agree, but as members of the union, we will have to comply,” he told BNT.

Minister Dimitrov announced that the number of tourists who entered Bulgaria from the beginning of the year to the end of August was over 5 million, which is close to the record for tourism in 2019.

“Our main goal is to pay the hoteliers, but this is European money. Every single penny will be checked how it was spent, when we are 100% sure that there is no fraud, everything will be paid. At the end of the program there will be a period from 10 days and anyone who feels harmed will be able to file a complaint. If there is a mistake, it will be corrected,” assured Dimitrov regarding the payment of money to hoteliers who sheltered Ukrainian refugees.
