20 Bulgarian Buses Held up on the Horgoš-Röszke Border Between Serbia and Hungary

Yesterday, April 1st, 2018, 20 busses with Bulgarian passengers were blocked on the Hungary-Serbian border.

The holdup occurred on the Horgoš-Röszke border checkpoint. According to the Foreign Ministry in Bulgaria, the Bulgarian Embassy in Budapest has assisted our stranded countrymen.

The reason given for the crossing delay was the tightening of Hungarian border checkups due to the migrant crisis. The process is called operation “Land borders 2018.” It included strict checkups of all vehicles entering from Serbia, especially large buses and transport trucks, as illegal migrants can be hidden inside. Another reason given for the slow passage on the Hungary-Serbian is the upcoming Easter holiday period, as a lot of the workforce will be on leave during that time.

What does this mean for Bulgarians? The main way to reach Vienna, Austria is through the Horgoš-Röszke border checkpoint. If you’re travelling on that track, bear in mind that the checkups will be stricter than average.
