I am new to this forum, I have read a couple of topics which are similar to mine, but they were very old, so I just want to clarify if everything is the same.
I'm planning to get a long-term student visa (D) for a Schengen/EU country which should start in the end of August. I am also planning to go on vacation to Bulgaria (which is not a part of the Schengen zone but is an EU country) in the beginning of August.
At this point, the nationals of my country are allowed to enter Bulgaria with a negative test. Provided that the situation is the same, won't my future visa prohibit me from entering the EU before it starts?
To clarify, I am the national of a country which has a visa-free regime with the EU (in regular times).
