Consular Services at the Embassy Related to Certifying Private Documents

Authentication of dates, content and signatures on private documents


Article 84 of the Notaries and Notarial Activity Act empowers all Bulgarian diplomatic and consular representations abroad to authenticate the dates, content and signatures on private documents that are not subject to entry in a register. The Consular Section does not have the power to issue notary deeds or verify other private documents that are subject to entry in a register (e.g. statements of claim or contracts for motor vehicle transfer). As per the Notaries and Notarial Activity Act, the Consular Section verifies the date, content and signatures on private documents, only if they are written by Bulgarian citizens who are able to submit a Bulgarian proof of identity valid outside Bulgaria (passport). Submitting a Bulgarian ID card or a Bulgarian driving license is not acceptable, as these are proof of identity only valid inside Bulgaria. Submitting another country’s proof of identity is unacceptable and results in the Consular Section’s refusal to verify the documents.

Verifying copies of original documents. Wills.

The Consular Section verifies the authenticity of copies, transcripts and excerpts from documents submitted by Bulgarian citizens. The documents submitted for verification must have been issued by a Bulgarian agency. To have their copies, etc. verified, the applicants should submit them together with the original documents. Consular officials are also empowered to draw up notary wills for Bulgarian citizens.

Verification of translators’ signatures

The Bulgarian Embassy does not provide translation services to the public. It can only verify the signatures of certified freelance translators who have been approved and registered with the Consular Section. Their names and contact details are obtainable from the Consular Section as well as from the Embassy’s website. Signatures of translators other than those registered with the Consular Section cannot be verified.

The Bulgarian visas are issued by the Bulgarian embassies and consulates abroad, not at the airports or the land and sea passport control points in Bulgaria.

By applying for a Bulgarian visa, the applicant agrees that his/her personal data appearing on the application form would be electronically stored and processed, and if necessary, passed over to the appropriate authorities of other countries in execution of Bulgaria's international obligations.

A visa is issued only to holders of passports or travel documents that are valid for Bulgaria for at least 3 months after the end of the intended stay and that contain a blank page for affixing of visa vignettes.

With effect from 1 January 2006, all children entering Bulgaria will need to have their own passport. Children included in their parents' passports will only be allowed in if the passport also contains their photograph.

Upon entry into Bulgaria, foreigners should declare in writing the purpose of their stay and the address at which they will reside. To this end they should fill in a registration form. Exempt of that are the citizens of the European Union member-states and the citizens of the countries in the Economic European Area. The same applies to the UK for British citizens passport holders only.

This is in accordance with changes to the regulations for the implementation of the Law on Foreigners which the Bulgarian Government approved at the end of 2005. The new regulations came into effect from 1 January 2006.
