Bulgaria will allow flights from the United Kingdom from 1000 GMT on Wednesday to help Bulgarians wishing to return home, the government said in a statement.

The Balkan country closed its air, land and sea borders to travellers from Britain late on Sunday in an attempt to prevent the spread of the new variant of the coronavirus.

Travellers coming from the UK will be tested for the coronavirus and will have to observe a 10-day quarantine after arrival, the government said.
