  • Submitting your document: Please bring ALL the pages of the document to be notarized, UNSIGNED and assembled in the CORRECT ORDER (including the exhibits if applicable).  If any pages are missing or are not in the correct order you may be asked to make a new appointment. Bring instructions from the end user in the state of jurisdiction if provided; pages to be signed should be indicated, in advance, with a post-it.
  • What am I signing?  Ensure that you understand the contents of the document(s).  The notarizing officer cannot explain them, assemble them for you, or provide legal advice. 
  • Witnesses: notarizing officers and embassy staff are prohibited from acting as witnesses. If your document requires one or more, you need to bring  them (along with proof of identity). If you have witnesses or co-signers, enter their names in advance of your appointment using this Notarial Contact Form. (Use this form for Paris only.)
  • Identification: Provide valid government issued identification at the time of your visit to the Consular Section of the Embassy.
  • Fees:  the fee per Consular Seal is US $50 or the Euro equivalent. Payment may be made by major credit card or cash in Euros or U.S. Dollars. The Embassy does not accept personal checks.
  • We assume no responsibility for the safeguarding of clients’ personal notarial documents. No records are kept for this service.
  • If you have questions concerning your document, please send a scanned copy of the entire text to this email address.
  • Please read these IMPORTANT TIPS before coming to your appointment.
