Travel documents for minors – Bulgaria
Where a child of Bulgarian nationality travels with both parents, a valid ID card or passport (only passports are issued to children up to the age of 14) issued by the Bulgarian police is enough.
Otherwise children also need to have:
- A written declaration of consent from the second parent if they are travelling with only one parent. This must be signed and certified by a notary or judge registrar (or at a Bulgarian diplomatic or consular service if the second parent lives abroad);
- A declaration from both parents made before a notary if the minors are travelling with an adult other than their parents.
Bulgarian children who live abroad long-term or who have dual citizenship do not need these declarations but must carry both their Bulgarian and foreign ID documents.
More detailed information and an example of the declaration (this also exists in English) on the website of thebg
Other than their own valid travel document, no particular official authorisation is required for minors of any other EU country to enter Bulgaria.
