My question for married couples who came to Bulgaria for retirement. How did you apply your marriage certificate to Immigration Service? They want us to apostle the document, to translate and legalize in Ministry of Foreign Affairs. At the end we have to give this original document to Immigration Service and.....practically lost it !!! When I refused to leave original document, I receive an option: to make a copy, translate, notarized. Sounds right. I went to Translation/Legalization office. Folks looked at original marriage certificate and said : for Legalization you need an apostle. I explained that Immigration Service was agreed on translated and notarized copy. Since it is a copy, Legalization is not needed. So we called to Immigration Service. Immigration Service after question: Do you need legalization and apostle, says - Yes! They need apostle and legalization.
Same person in the same organization gave two different answers.
Does anybody knows the right answer?
Thank you for your help
