Germany Automobile Club Warns of Bulgaria Customs Frauds
The biggest German automobile club, ADAC, has warned its members to be cautious when passing the Bulgarian borders, over the risk of customs frauds.
Allgemeiner Deutscher Automobil-Club (ADAC) which is also Europe's largest automobile club, has announced in a press release that there are corrupted customs officers who require that foreign tourist show a certificate that they do not carry the new virus Рќ1N 1 (swine flu).
If the foreigners do not have such a document, they are being fined, ADAC said, referring to its own sources.
The organization reminds that Bulgarian authorities do not require any kind of health documents to be presented, and advices tourists not to allow anyone to treat them with any kind of vaccination.
"There is not known vaccination for swine flu, and it is not clear what can be put on you as vaccination", ADAC said.
It also says that the web site of the Bulgarian embassy in Berlin has published an official opinion in Bulgarian and German, which confirms that there is no need of health documentation.
In case of frauds, the tourists are advised to remember the color of the officer's uniform, the exact time, and the border crossing point, and call the embassy in Berlin at 0049 30 2010922 and 0049 176 12299190.
ADAC calls for caution of the tourists when buying vignettes, because some customs officers are offering them at considerably higher prices, or trying to sell month or year vignettes explaining that the they were out of week ones.
