The Bulgarian Lev (Leva) is pegged to approximately half the value of the Euro. This has meant that the Lev has fallen in value greatly in recent times. Bulgaria had intended to join the Eurozone group of countries on 1st of January 2012, On Jan 16th 2015 Bulgaria started the Euro ascension discussions and preparations towards joining the exchange rate mechanism (ERMII) but because of recent economic challenges no date has been fixed for the time being.
Visitors to Bulgaria are advised to only exchange money at official banks as street sellers offering to change money in market stalls are one of the most common types of petty criminal; especially in the capital city Sofia. The Foreign and Commonwealth office advise to be aware of pickpockets in city centres and tourist resorts especially in crowded areas e.g. buses, trains and busy streets. We would add that you should also be on the alert around ATM machines where it is obvious to criminals that you are carrying cash. If you can use ATM machine situated inside the bank or in an atrium.
Most bureau de change in the UK carry a stock of Levs so changing your money before you go and selling it back upon your return should pose no problems at all. There is also a national network of ATM machines where you can withdraw local currency in Bulgaria – although at a poor exchange rate. It is also worth noting that in Bulgaria travellers cheques can only be cashed at banks.
If you hold a British passport you won't need a visa to enter Bulgaria. You should however ensure that you passport is valid for the length of your stay, and if you want to visit for more than 3 months you'll need to register with the Bulgarian authorities and apply for a permit.
