Other consular services
Notarial and documentary services
For legal reasons, we’re unable to carry out notarial acts in Commonwealth countries. This includes certifying documents as true copies of originals, administering oaths or taking affidavits. For these or other notarial acts, you should contact a local notary. A standard letter is available to confirm we do not offer these services in Pakistan.
We offer a limited range of documentary services. See the list of documentary services we provide.
We charge fees for some of our services. See the full list of consular fees in Pakistan.
We also provide services in Karachi.
