In the second week after the official entry of the green certificate as a means by which certain places and events can be visited, the question of where and when it can be acquired if you have not been vaccinated or have contracted the virus remains extremely important.
In this case, you have two options - either to do a PCR test at a price of BGN 80, which is valid for a period of 72 hours, or you can choose a rapid antigen test with a validity period of 48 hours. This way you can take a test on Friday afternoon and use it to go out or attend events on Friday after work, on Saturday and until Sunday afternoon. This is also the most preferred scenario, especially after the ministry announced that some of these types of tests will be "free". That is, they are delivered to certain laboratories under pre-concluded contracts and you only pay for the sampling at a price of BGN 10.
The only bilingual digital guide under the hills gathered this information for you and in the image below you will find the laboratories in Plovdiv and the region, where in the presence of tests from this delivery you will be able to get one for only BGN 10.
It is mandatory to comply with the business hours of each of them, bearing in mind that for some it is advisable to book an appointment and that they don’t usually work on weekends and afternoons.
The big shopping centers quickly organized outsourced laboratories on their territory, where at the same price you can test yourself in a slightly longer range of working hours - usually between 10 am and 7 pm. They are available every day.
One of the municipal councilors in the city suggested that such checkpoints be built on the Main Street and in the Kapana district, but for now this is still a good intention, which we have no idea if and how it would happen.
If you wish to take advantage of this price, we recommend that you check in advance if tests are available and reconfirm the business hours of the selected laboratory.
