Expired or lost passports – Bulgaria

As a Bulgarian national you are not allowed to leave or (re)enter Bulgaria unless you have a valid passport or identity card.

If your passport has expired or been lost or stolen, you will need to go the nearest Bulgarian diplomatic or consular service to apply for a new document or temporary passport to (re)enter Bulgaria.

If you are a citizen of another EU country, the Bulgarian authorities can issue a temporary travel document only with the agreement of the authorities of your own country.
