Embassy of Bulgaria issues Cancun travel warning due to large number of denied entries

Cancun, Q. R. — The Embassy of Bulgaria in Mexico has issued a warning for their countrymen traveling to Cancun. The warning came after more than two dozen Bulgarians were denied entry into the country at Cancun International.

“We recommend that Bulgarian citizens refrain from traveling!” is the title above the Mexico travel section of the Bulgarian Embassy page.

“Due to frequent cases of Bulgarian citizens not being admitted to the territory of Mexico by the immigration authorities at the airport in Cancun and until the reasons for this are clarified by the Mexican authorities, the embassy advises Bulgarian citizens who are about to travel to Cancun and who could postpone it to consider such a possibility.

“In the event of detention by the migration authorities, we advise Bulgarian citizens to insist on being contacted by the embassy for assistance, as well as to request a copy of the inadmissibility form,” they posted on their website.

Late last year, Bulgarian diplomats asked the federal government of Mexico to clarify the many cases of inadmissibility of Bulgarian tourists, most of which, have occurred at Cancun International.

According to information obtained, at least 27 Bulgarian tourists have been denied entry into Mexico at the Cancun airport since December of 2022.
