Due to the situation in Ukraine, Azerbaijani citizens who left the country by crossing the border to neighboring countries can enter Turkey by land in transit through the territory of Bulgaria, AzVision.az reports citing Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry.
The ministry said that Azerbaijani citizens who left Ukraine by crossing the land border to neighboring countries can go to the Republic of Bulgaria through all checkpoints between Romania and Bulgaria, and from there, having entered the territory of the Republic of Turkey, go to Azerbaijan.
"Taking into account the fact that the citizens of the Republic of Azerbaijan left the territory of the Republic of Ukraine in connection with the conflict, the Bulgarian side temporarily canceled the visa regime for transit through the territory of the country. At the same time, our citizens must present a travel document (passport or certificate of return) at the border checkpoint," the ministry noted.
The Foreign Ministry also stated that due to the humanitarian situation, the Bulgarian side will not necessarily require a COVID passport and a negative PCR test for COVID-19 from citizens of the Republic of Azerbaijan wishing to cross the land border.
