Local Laws & Special Circumstances

2 Jun 2015

While you are traveling in Bulgaria, you are subject to its laws and regulations. Foreign laws and legal systems can be vastly different from our own. Persons violating Bulgarian laws, even unknowingly, may be expelled, arrested, or imprisoned. Penalties for possessing, using, or trafficking in illegal drugs in Bulgaria are severe; convicted offenders can expect long jail sentences and heavy fines. In Bulgaria, driving under the influence could land you immediately in jail. If you break local laws in Bulgaria, your foreign passport will not help you avoid arrest or prosecution.
