Social Tourism a myth

Published tisdag 12 oktober 2004 kl 13.20

Worries over flood of new EU members flooding Sweden unfounded.

Government worries about a rise in so-called social tourism here were apparently unfounded. 

When the ten new members of the European Union entered the bloc May 1st, many expressed concern that there would be a flood of immigrants from the relatively poorer new members who would apply for benefits.  But according to a new report, during May, June and July, roughly 3 million dollars in social benefits were paid out in Sweden, with under 15 thousand dollars of that going to new EU citizens.
