- holders of national short-stay visas issued by the republic of Bulgaria and Romania before March 31, 2024. These visas will remain valid until their expiry date. However, holders of these visas will only be able to travel in the Republic of Bulgaria, Romania and Cyprus!

- holders of residence permits in uniform format (in accordance with the Council Regulation (EC) 1030/2002 as modified by the Council Regulation (EC) 380/2008), or national long-stay visas issued by the Republic of Bulgaria and Romania will be entitled to visa-free short-stay in the Schengen Area (no more than 90 days in any 180 days period).
