Bulgaria Travel Information

Although Bulgaria is not yet officially a part of the Schengen Area, it abides by the same visa laws which enable UAE nationals to enter the country visa free for up to 90 days. Along the coast of the country you can expect a fairly mild winter period and warm summers, although in some areas it can get very cold with frequent snowfall. Be advised that Bulgaria does not utilize the Euro despite there being plans for it to do so, so you will need to change up your money to the Bulgarian lev instead.
