The American Citizen Services Unit provides notary services for those persons wishing to execute documents in the presence of a U.S. consular officer. This service is available to both U.S. citizens and non-U.S. citizens who need to have documents notarized for use in the United States.
Appointments are required for all notary services. Given Embassy security screening and application processing times, the average appointment takes approximately two hours.
The fee is $50 per signature/seal. The fee is charged for notarizing all types of documents except for forms required by a U.S. government agency (e.g. DS-3053 or certification of savings bonds).
Only certain documents can be notarized at a U.S. Embassy or Consulate for use in the United States. Read the following pages for instructions, fees, and appointment scheduling.
