Office of the Honorary Consul of Canada to Bulgaria in Sofia

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19)

Due to ongoing concerns related to the spread of COVID-19, preventative measures have been enacted throughout our global network of offices. Consular services remain available to Canadians. Many Government of Canada offices are encouraging clients to limit in-person visits. Canadians in need of assistance should contact the Government of Canada office nearest them by phone or e-mail before visiting in person. You can also contact the Emergency Watch and Response Centre.

For information on COVID-19, please visit the Government of Canada's official outbreak page and check our Travel Advice and Advisories. Make sure to register with the Registration of Canadians Abroad to get the latest updates at your destination.

Assistance to Canadians: This Office provides consular assistance, notarial services and passport and citizenship application forms to Canadian citizens. Honorary Consul offices do not issue passports. Full consular services are offered at the Embassy in Bucharest.
