Which authority will help me send a claim to another EU country?
The Swedish Crime Victim Compensation and Support Authority
P.O. Box 470
What is the role of the assisting authority?
As the assisting authority, the Swedish Crime Victim Compensation and Support Authority can help to ensure that a claim made to the deciding authority in another EU country is made correctly and that the claim is sent to the deciding authority. The Swedish Crime Victim Compensation and Support Authority also conveys information and messages between the claimant and the deciding authority, for example when supplementary information or evidence is required from the claimant in order for a decision to be made.
Will this authority translate the supporting documents, if the outgoing claim needs this? If so, who pays for this?
Yes; translations will be done where necessary. The Swedish Crime Victim Compensation and Support Authority will bear the translation costs.
Are there administrative or other charges to be paid when the claim is sent abroad?
