Announcement to seasonal workers planning to leave for Sweden24 July 2012
In recent days there have been frequent cases of Bulgarian citizens who have arrived to pick blueberries in Sweden getting into trouble, and then approaching the Bulgarian Embassy in Stockholm with requests for assistance to return to Bulgaria.
In this regard, the Foreign Ministry wishes to inform you that the Embassy in Stockholm has no means of buying tickets to Bulgaria. Bulgarian citizens who have no means to return to Bulgaria should seek assistance from relatives. The Bulgarian Embassy in Stockholm has undertaken to provide up-to-date information on how to travel to Bulgaria by air or bus lines.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs strongly recommends that Bulgarian citizens who want to undertake seasonal work in Sweden should have signed contracts, full information about the employer and be sure that the employer is serious.
