I have been trying to find information if travel from Germany to Bulgaria is permitted given I have EU permanent residency.

Germany was classified as a Red Zone Country two weeks ago: https://www.mfa.bg/en/customnews/main/24737

While it states EU citizens are allowed with full vaccinations and PCR test, there is no info about permanent residents.

Based on the wording of the Ordinance, where for the Green and Orange zones the exceptions are for all persons from the listed countries, for the Red zone the exceptions are mainly for those who may exercise the Freedom of Movement (plus UK and countries listed in Annex 4 of the Ordinance) within the European Union.

Other 3rd country nationals, who are residents of the red zone countries, are therefore excluded from these exceptions.

The site of the German Embassy, Sofia uses a similar wording, so you may assume that this is not a mistake.
