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

The Violent Offences Compensation Fund (Schadefonds Geweldsmisdrijven)

The Hague

Telephone: 070-4142000
Fax: 070-4142001


Postal address:
Postbus 71
NL-2501 CB
The Hague

What is the role of the assisting authority?

We will send you an application form for the relevant foreign fund on request. Once the Violent Offences Compensation Fund has received the completed application form and any accompanying documents from you, we will have these translated, if necessary, and pass them on to the authority concerned.

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

Our authority, the Violent Offences Compensation Fund, will have documents translated, if necessary, at its own expense.

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