APAV just launched a revamped website dedicated to tourists victims of crime: May I Help You?. Developed under the Project May I Help You?, promoted by APAV, this site aims to improve the information and support given to people who are victims of a crime in another Member State of the European Union. The information on the website is available in Portuguese, English and Spanish.
Considering that the crime victim can feel even more vulnerable when visiting a foreign country, in addition to the linguistic and cultural differences, it is difficult for victims to seek support after the crime.
This site provides useful information for tourists, informing them of their rights, providing information on available support systems, safety tips, tourist information about Portugal and information on APAV.
APAV has deepened support for victims tourists over the years, working closely with the embassies and consulates. This new site is another important tool to complement this ongoing work specific support.
