The legalization of documents for abroad in Bulgaria is effected at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and abroad, at the embassies and consular departments of the Republic of Bulgaria. ADAPT BULGARIA is an intermediary in legalizing the translated documents, as well as original documents, without translation, needing legalization in the target country. The legalization of a translation is validated by means of a certificate, issued by the Legalization and Certification Section of the Administrative Service for Citizens Department to the Consular Relations Directorate with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or an Apostille, placed on the document itself, or on an Annex thereon. The Apostille certification is a legalization of the document by the competent authority of the state, from which the document emanates. The Apostille certification guarantees the validity and the international acknowledgement of the Bulgarian official documents. More detailed information on the authorities, issuing Apostille in Bulgaria as well as of the other states is available at www.hcch.net.
The legalization of documents coming from abroad, intended to be used in the Republic of Bulgaria should be translated into Bulgarian in one of the two ways specified below:
- by an official appointed by order of the Head of the diplomatic or consular service of the Republic of Bulgaria abroad.
- by translators included in a list maintained by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs who translate documents and other papers. For any foreign document translated into Bulgarian intended to be used on the territory of the Republic of Bulgaria, it is necessary the signature of the translator affixed on the translation done by them to be notarized by a Bulgarian Notary Public.
