If my claim is to be sent from this country to another EU country

Which authority will help me send a claim to another EU country?


National Council for Assistance and Compensation to Victims of Crime

Address: 1 Slavyanska Street, Sofia 1040, Republic of Bulgaria

Web: http://www.compensation.bg/

What is the role of the assisting authority?

The National Council for Assistance and Compensation to Victims of Crime seeks assistance from the competent authorities of other countries in cases where Bulgarian nationals have become crime victims abroad. It also assists foreign nationals legally residing in the Republic of Bulgaria in order to provide support measures.

The National Council assists Bulgarian nationals who have become crime victims in another EU Member State in filling out applications for compensation and transmits the completed forms to the competent authority of the other Member State concerned.

Will this authority translate the supporting documents, if the outgoing claim needs this? If so, who pays for this?

Yes, it will. The National Council for Assistance and Compensation to Victims of Crime will translate the supporting documents if necessary. Crime victims do not pay for this translation.

Are there administrative or other charges to be paid when the claim is sent abroad?

No, there are not.
