With the world-famous River Danube snaking through the country's beautiful mountains and lakes and a quickly-booming private sector boasting big global names like Shell and AstraZeneca, the 7.2 million residents of Bulgaria have a lot to be proud of.
As a member of the European Union, Bulgaria is a popular trading partner for the UK and in the last ten years, we have become the nation's fifth-largest investor. Not only that, financial data company Bloomberg recently gave Bulgaria the distinction of being the sixth-best country for doing business in Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
The country is also fast becoming a well-known tourist party destination, with Sunny Beach on the Black Sea coast attracting more and more Brits every summer who want to let their hair down with some sun, sea and sand.
Perhaps you do business in one of the highly urbanised metropolitan centres like the capital Sofia, and want to send files or supplies to your team or associates. Or maybe your loved ones are travelling or working in the country's tourist industry, and you reckon it's time they got a treat from home. Whatever your parcel needs, ParcelBroker can help ensure smooth travels for your packages across the continent.
Do I need to deal with customs when sending from the UK to Bulgaria?
As both nations are members of the European Union, sending parcels from the UK to Bulgaria does not require dealing with customs. You can send items as you normally would in the UK.
Although the Brexit vote means the UK is set to leave the EU, this has not yet taken place and currently will not affect the customs arrangements.
How much does it cost to send a parcel from the UK to Bulgaria?
Due to the absence of customs fees, the cost of sending parcels to Bulgaria is much lower than sending outside of the EU. You will only need to pay for the courier costs, and this will vary based on size, weight and other factors.
How should I address my parcel for delivery to Bulgaria?
There are various ways to address a parcel to Bulgaria. One way is to write the street name followed by the number on the first line. On the second line, add the postal code and then the name of the town or city in capital letters. Finally, add "REP OF BULGARIA" in capitals on the third line.
Royal Mail advises including on the front of the package the mobile phone number of the person the parcel is being sent to.
