Holidaymakers given fresh warning if visiting Sweden as threat grows this week

Sweden is a beautiful place with lots of history, nature and sites for holidaymakers to enjoy and more people may be gearing up to visit ahead of Eurovision.

A warning has been shared before of the event as there is a higher risk of protests and disrupted travel.

The Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) has urged Britons to stay alert and follow the latest updates and advice if visiting in the coming days.

It stated: “The Eurovision song contest will take place in Malmö from 4 May to 11 May. There will be a greater number of people in Malmö during this time.

Britons heading to Sweden have been warned


“Travel around the city may be affected by travel control systems or protests. See safety and security information if you plan to be in Malmö, or attending the event.

“If you are planning to attend see the Eurovision song contest website for information about ticketing and practical guidance on how to travel around the city.

“Also check information from the Swedish authorities on the kriseinformation website [and] sign up to get email alerts when the FCDO updates this Sweden travel advice page.”

The UK Government body added protests are more likely during this time so Britons should be aware of this when travelling through the country.

The FCDO stated: “Wildfires happen frequently in Turkey during summer.



Protests may take place in the next week


“If there is a wildfire in your area, local authorities may tell you to leave your accommodation. Follow the directions of local authorities.

“You could get a fine or prison sentence for lighting a fire of any kind or discarding cigarettes in risk areas such as woodland. Barbecues are prohibited in these areas.”

Britons should avoid doing anything that would put them at risk and follow advice from local authorities.
