I have a single-entry visa for Bulgaria. It would start tomorrow but I didn't use it yet and I want to go and stay a day in Bucharest from Sofia and come back to Sofia.

I think because my visa is single-entry they won't allow for me to enter again, can I go to embassy and ask them to make my visa multiple entries before travelling? Or is there another solution like get a permission from Bulgaria or something like that?

  • @mkennedy the linked question does not explicitly concern a single-entry visa. – phoog Jul 27 '15 at 17:58
  • @phoog Based on a comment in the accepted answer, yes, it does. – mkennedy Jul 27 '15 at 19:46

    @HeshamAbusaif I think the answer is yes, you can ask. I do not know whether they will entertain your question, or how likely they are to look upon it favorably, but you can certainly ask. If you have a good and convincing reason to travel to Romania, they may grant your request. I suspect they'll tell you to make a new application for a dual-entry visa, however. The only way to find out for sure is to call the embassy and ask. – phoog Jul 28 '15 at 0:52

I think that you don't meet the conditions for a multile entry visa. From the Bulgarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs

A multiple visa with a validity term of up to one year may be issued to a foreigner provided he/she has obtained a short-stay visa in the preceding year and it was used in compliance with the legal provisions for entry and stay in the Republic of Bulgaria and there are grounds to apply for a multiple entry visa.

A multiple short - stay visa may be issued to a foreigner who meets any of the conditions below :

  1. Maintains lasting business contacts with Bulgarian natural or legal persons engaging in business in the meaning of the Commerce Act;
  2. maintains lasting business contacts with Bulgarian legal persons engaging in business in the meaning of the Non - Profit Legal Persons Act;
  3. maintains lasting business contacts with representation offices of foreign legal persons registered pursuant to article 24 of the Investment Promotion Act;
  4. has substantial pers onal contribution to the development of bilateral relations with the Republic of Bulgaria;
  5. is a member of the family of a Bulgarian citizen in the meaning of the Foreigners in the Republic of Bulgaria Act;
  6. is a member of the family of a citizen of a Europe an Union member - state, of the European Economic Area or of the Swiss Confederation residing permanently in the Republic of Bulgaria;
  7. is a member of the family of a foreigner residing permanently in the Republic of Bulgaria keeping his/her customary residence abroad;
