The Department is not in a position to vouch for information contained on the sites of local service providers.

Please note the following important information:

  • Notarial services, including for permanent residency applications, remain suspended. We will resume notarial services as soon as possible, but we are unable to provide a specific date. We will update this page when we resume providing notarial services and appointments will be available here.
  • Preparation for a Notary Appointment:
    • Bring a valid government-issued photo ID (passport, U.S. state driver’s license, or military ID card).
    • Make sure you understand your document.
      • Consular staff cannot explain the contents of your document to you, or advise you on what is required of you for your documents.
      • Complete the document with the appropriate names, places, and dates before you arrive.
      • Do not sign the form. You will sign it at the Embassy in front of a Consular Officer.
      • We cannot notarize blank documents.
      • Mark the pages where you and the notary need to sign.
      • If your document requires the presence of witnesses in addition to the notarization, you are responsible for providing these witnesses. Please include their names on your appointment request or they will not be granted entry to the office.  Consular staff are prohibited from serving as witnesses.
    • The current fee is USD50 per notary signature. Cash (USD or local currently equivalent) and credit card payments are accepted.
