If you are due to travel in the next 24 hours, contact us as soon as possible.

If you are travelling in more than 3 weeks, check if you can get a new or replacement passport in time to travel.

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.

Consular fees

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