The British Embassy in Brasilia maintains and develops relations between the UK and Brazil.

Due to coronavirus (COVID-19), the British Diplomatic Mission in Brazil is operating remotely. We have temporarily limited consular services and we are offering a reduced number of appointments for notarial services on a monthly basis. We are prioritising emergency cases, and all appointments will be confirmed in advance.

Find out more on our UK and Brazil news page.

We provide services to British nationals living in and visiting Brazil.

You can access UK government services while in Brazil.

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. 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.

Consular fees

We charge fees for some of our services. See the full list of consular fees in Brazil.
