Travel papers and visas
A valid international passport is required to enter the country. Bulgarian citizens travelling to Chad (holders of regular, official and diplomatic passports) need a visa which they can obtain at the Embassy of Chad in Moscow.
European Emergency Travel Document:
In extreme situations — in case of damage, loss or theft of a passport, Bulgarian citizens can apply for an Emergency Travel Document at an Embassy of an EU Member State in Chad.
Certifications and legalizations:
In order to be valid in Bulgaria and to be able to serve before Bulgarian institutions, all documents issued by the authorities in Chad to Bulgarian citizens should bear the stamp of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Chad. Then, they are certified by the Embassy of Chad accredited to Bulgaria — in this case in Moscow. The signature and certifications of the Consular Office are then certified at our Embassy in Moscow.
Once the documents have been so prepared, they must be translated into Bulgarian by an authorized translation agency in Bulgaria and the translation must be certified by the Department of Certifications and Legalizations with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Bulgaria.
