Turkish citizens need a visa to enter Bulgaria.

In line with the decision of AKP Chairman and President Tayyip Erdoğan, Bulgarian citizens will now be able to enter the country only with an identity card when they come to Turkey for touristic purposes; You won’t need a passport.

The decision, dated 26 July 2022, was announced in the Official Gazette published today with the words “Decision on Providing Visa Exemption for Touristic Travels and Transit Passes of the Citizens of the Republic of Bulgaria with a Maximum of 90 Days of Residence in Every 180 Days to Turkey”.

Accordingly, Bulgarian citizens will be able to enter Turkey by only showing their identity card, on the condition that it is limited to 90 days in every 180 days.

Turkish citizens, on the other hand, need a visa to enter the neighboring country of Bulgaria.

Turkey’s signing of an agreement that gave Norwegian citizens the right to travel with an identity card had been the subject of discussion before. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs cited the “chip crisis” as the reason for the decision.

Turkey has recently taken steps to travel with Serbia with mutual identity.
