Bulgaria opens visa centres in 16 Indian cities

Bulgaria's Ambassador to India Eleonora Dimitrova has signed, on behalf of the Foreign Ministry, an agreement with India's VFS Global outsourcing company, the Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.

VFS Global is to open visa application centres in 16 of the country's largest cities, which will greatly facilitate access to visa services for India's nationals. This is expected to increase considerably the number of tourist and business trips to Bulgaria. The first two visa centres, in New Delhi and Mumbai, are expected to open by the end of November. All the rest will open by the year's end.
VSF Global is to promote Bulgaria as a tourist destination on the Indian market. The agreement spells out activities including sending information on a regular basis to travel agents within the company's network, partnering with media, publishing information in travel magazines and social network campaigns.
