UNHCR Partner: Free Legal Aid to Stateless Persons



Since January 2019, the Foundation for Access to Rights - FAR has a partnership agreement with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees in Bulgaria to provide free legal aid to stateless persons.

FAR provides:

  • Legal aid for stateless persons who are at risk of detention or have already been detained in detention centers for illegal immigrants.
  • Legal assistance to prepare and submit applications under the procedure for granting the status of a stateless person under the Law on Foreigners in the Republic of Bulgaria.
  • Representation and defense before the courts and administrative bodies in Bulgaria.

The project  includes visits and information sessions at the centers of the State Agency for Refugees (SAR) and at the Special Homes for Temporary Accommodation of Foreigners (SCTAF) - Busmantsi and Lyubimets.
