Notarial and authentication services are one of the oldest traditional U.S. consular functions, dating back to 1792. Consular officials at any U.S. embassy or consulate abroad can provide a service similar to the functions of a notary public in the United States. It is also possible to have a document notarized by a local foreign notary and then have the document authenticated by a U.S. consular officer.
U.S. citizens and nationals of other countries may use the Embassy's notarial services. To learn more about the Embassy's notarial services, please visit the State Department website.
To schedule a notarial appointment, please use the American Citizen Services scheduling system.
