CONSULAR ASSISTANCE TO OUR CITIZENS IN BG

According to last official data of Statistical Office nearly 81 500 Slovaks visited Bulgaria in 2013 out of them 66 000 during the summer tourist season. In 2012 it was more than 90 000 Slovak citizens.

To help these tourists to cope with emergency situations we have opened the Honorary consulate in Varna which since last year can also issue emergency travel documents for Slovak citizens (13 out of total 17 last year).

Slovak Embassy has 24/7 diplomatic duty to help our citizens in emergency.

Main problems we faced during the summer tourist season were bancrupcies of Slovak travel agencies (A-Tour in 2013), bus and car accidents, small robberies of valuables and documents, death (8 cases in 2013) and injuries.

All Slovak travel agents are obligatory insured against bancrupcy.

In majority of the cases were Bulgarian authorities very supportive. Problem was lack of translators at the police stations
