Fees

Notarial services: $50 per consular seal

All fees are non-refundable.  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).

The fee is per consular signature/seal, not per document.  For example, you will be charged $150 for a single document that requires the consular officer to sign and acknowledge your signature in three places.

Payment methods:

Cash:

  • U.S. dollars
  • New Israeli Shekels (NIS) (amount is according to the U.S. Embassy daily rate of exchange)

Credit cards: Only international credit cards that can accept charges in U.S. dollars

Bank checks:

  • Must be payable to “U.S. Embassy”
  • Must be in the U.S. dollar amount of the service (not the shekel equivalent)
  • Must be typed by the bank; bank checks with handwritten information (or handwritten revisions) will not be accepted
  • Must have a series of three electronically-printed numbers on the bottom
  • Must show the dollar amount completely and properly within the amount box, with the amount printed neither above nor below the box
