Please note that appointments made under the “Notarial and other services” category are exclusively for notary services. We are unable to provide information on visa applications or other services during a notarial appointment.
Please plan ahead. The U.S. Embassy/Consular Agency cannot accommodate requests for emergency appointments for notarial services. If your document does not require notarization by a U.S. notary, you may consider using a local notary.
What to Bring
Complete, unsigned document(s):
Also known as webcam notarization, online notarization, or virtual notarization, a remote notarization allows for notarization of documents using audio-visual technology over the internet. While many states accept documents notarized through online services, you will need to research whether they can be used in the state where your document will be filed and if any special conditions apply. For more information and to find an online notary please visit National Notary Association, click here.
Every adult (age 16 or older) that visits the embassy should bring two forms of photo ID (passport, identity card, U.S. driver’s license). You must leave one ID with security personnel and the other ID you must present to the consul when you submit you application. The identification you present to the consul should be the U.S. passport, when possible.
All U.S. Embassy/Consular Agency visitors and their personal belongings must pass through security screening before entering. The following items are strictly forbidden. We ask all our visitors to leave these items at home. None of these devices can be stored at the Embassy/Consular Agency.
This list is not all-inclusive, and security officials reserve the right to deny entry of items determined to be unsafe or a threat to security.
