Notarial and documentary services guide for Madagascar

Documents, certificates, letters and notes available at the British Consulate in Madagascar.


The British consulate does not provide notarial and documentary services for British nationals in Madagascar. Where local notaries can provide services, the British consulate will not provide them. In many cases local notaries or lawyers can sometimes provide these services more conveniently.


If you still cannot find what you are looking for you can contact the consulate.

For consular assistance, for a British National please call (+261) 2022 33053 / (+261) 3333 333056 between 8:30am – 3:45pm. For urgent consular assistance outside our office hours: please ring the same number and your call will be connected to our Global Response Centre who can provide the same assistance / advice as the consular team in Madagascar.
