Ireland: notarial and documentary services

Information for British nationals seeking notarial or documentary services at the British Embassy in Dublin.


The British Embassy in Dublin does not provide any notarial and documentary services for British nationals in Ireland.

For a list of services we do provide check this page.

Where local notaries can provide services, the British embassy will not provide them. In many cases local notaries or lawyers can provide services more cheaply, quickly and conveniently.

Services provided elsewhere

We no longer witness life certificates for British nationals claiming a British pension abroad. Please refer to the list of people working in a recognised profession who can do this for you.
