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.
