ABSTRACT
The article addresses the treatment of asylum seekers at the immigration detention centre in Bulgaria. In the country, the time between submission of an asylum application and its registration has no limitation, resulting in tremendous hardship for asylum seekers as many are obliged to remain indefinitely in detention without legal recourse while awaiting registration. Also, the large margin of discretion given to state officials regarding the time to register an asylum application has resulted in corruption.
