According to the embassy’s Facebook post, a Thai language infographic says, “Public Announcement: People intending to collect wild berries in Finland should be aware of the costs and debt involved prior to travel as well as the risks of seasonal price fluctuations.”

With concerns on airfare, seasonal work visas, travel insurance, working hours, and other daily living costs, the total cost was estimated to be over 150,000 baht.

Therefore, a well-solid plan is necessary before making decisions whether berry-picking in Finland is the true calling.
