Notarial and documentary services guide for Senegal

The British Consulate in Senegal issues a range of legal documents.

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.

It is essential to check with the relevant authority either in the UK, Senegal or a third country, where the consular certificate or service will be accepted. Only the relevant authority can confirm which service you will require. This information cannot be verified by the British Consulate.

Fees for consular certificates and documents are paid at the Consulate on the day of the appointment. Refunds will not be given for certificates or notarial services that are not accepted by the requesting authority.
