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.
We offer a limited range of documentary. See the list of documentary services we provide.
We charge fees for some of our services. See the full list of consular fees in Malawi.
