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 Namibia. You can request the letter by sending your request with your contact details to This is a free service and no consular fees are charged. Alternatively you can download the Notarial Acts Namibia letter for printing.

We offer a limited range of documentary services. See the list of documentary services we provide.
