The British Embassy in Brasilia maintains and develops relations between the UK and Brazil.
Due to coronavirus (COVID-19), the British Embassy and Consulates in Brazil are operating remotely. We have suspended notarial services until further notice. If you have an urgent consular issue, for example for an emergency travel document, you will need to book an appointment online. We are unable to see anyone without a pre-booked appointment. Contact us for any emergencies. If you are a British National visiting Brazil and need help returning to the UK, complete this form and check the Travel Advice for Brazil. Residents of Brazil should not complete the form.

Other consular services
Notarial and documentary services
We may be able to offer notarial services, including administer an oath, affirmation or affidavit; witness a signature; make a certified copy of a document; unite documents; legalise a document. Where local notaries can provide services, the British consulate will not provide them. In many cases local notaries or lawyers can provide services more cheaply, quickly and conveniently.
See the full list of notarial and documentary services we provide.
We charge fees for some of our services. See the full list of consular fees in Brazil.
