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 firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a free service and no consular fees are charged. Alternatively you can download the Notorial Acts Namibia letter for printing.
