Notarial and documentary services guide for Cuba
Documents, certificates, letters and notes available at the British Consulate in Havana.
The consulate at the British Embassy in Cuba issues a range of legal documents for British nationals. An appointment must be made for each service.
If there is no specific formal requirement for a notarial service or certificate to be provided by the British consulate, local notaries or lawyers can sometimes provide these services more conveniently, quickly and cheaply. Check with the relevant authority (eg Migration Office, tax authorities etc) either in the UK, Cuba or a third country, that our consular certificate or service will be accepted.
Your local British consulate cannot confirm this information, only the relevant authority can provide this confirmation. You can get examples of the wording of the consular certificates to present to the relevant authority for advice. Follow the step-by-step guide and request a sample certificate when the consular team contacts you to confirm your appointment.
Refunds of consular fees are not given for certificates or notarial services that are not accepted by the requesting authority. Fees for consular certificates and documents are paid at the consulate on the day of the appointment and can be paid by credit card, debit card or in cash.
