Easier access to notarial services for British Nationals in Macao

As of 9 April 2018, British Nationals in Macao will be able to access notarial services without having to visit the British Consulate in Hong Kong in person.

Easier access to notarial services for British Nationals in Macao

The consular team in the British Consulate-General Hong Kong will change how they offer notarial services in Macao to make the process more convenient. At present, British Nationals in Macao are obliged to make an appointment to visit the British Consulate-General in Hong Kong in person to present the necessary original documents and receive the final stamped document they require.

In the future, the final part of the process will be performed in Macao by our Honorary Consul, Dr Glenn McCartney MBE.

As of 9 April 2018, British Nationals in Macao should consult the guidance here and email NotarialServices.Macao@fco.gov.uk to request a notarial service.

In this email customers should:

  • tell us which service you require (see Services we provide in Hong Kong)

  • attach scanned copies of all of the required documents noted

  • attach scanned copies of any further required documents listed

Consulate staff will reply within three working days. If Consulate staff agree that we can provide the service requested, they will take payment online and subsequently pass customers’ details to our Honorary Consul in Macao, who will contact you within three working days to arrange an appointment. At this meeting, customers should present the original documents related to the service you need, whereupon he will perform the act required.

Honorary Consul Dr Glenn McCartney said:

I am delighted to be able to extend the duties I perform in Macao to include offering notarial services to British Nationals living and working in Macao.
