Bulgarian Dossier Instructions

Personalized for Josh and Marissa


Hi Amanda!

The green documents are “green” because I want to help you group them together in the sense that they will all be going together to get an “Apostille” from the Department of State in VT.   

In order to get an Apostille for a document in VT, you would send it to the VT Secretary of State at: 

Office of the Secretary of State
1078 Route 2, Middlesex
Montpelier, Vermont 05633-7701
Main Line: 802-828-3700


VT Charges $10 per Apostille

802-828-3700 – please call to verify nothing has changed

Click below to get the form you’ll need as a “cover letter” to request an Apostille from VT.


Now, keep in mind, just because all the “green” documents will go together, that does not mean that they are all prepared in the same way.  On the contrary there are quite a few differences in the steps you have to take with each in order to get them eligible for an apostille.  

One quick example is the Medical form.  It is signed by your doctor, and a notary notarizes his/her signature.  So you don’t have to do much but send it.  However, the reference form is something you make copies of and implement the affidavit/oath legalization before sending it – so you have more work there.  

Different forms will need different things done to them.  So please make sure to take the time and read the individual steps within each different document.  For some that I though were more challenging to prepare, there are videos of me explaining things.  Hope that helps.  

At the end of the day, remember, I am here to help, so if somethings isn’t clear – pick up the phone and call me! 704 527 7673. Or text, or skype me, or email me.

Lets do this thing!
