An appointment is required for this service.
(Documents used for legal purposes in Namibia can often be notarized free of charge at a Namibian Police station).
The individual who needs to sign the document must appear in person at a consular office, present proper identification (a valid passport, other official photo ID) and pay the appropriate fee. If witnesses are required, you must bring your own. Do not sign the document until requested to do so by the Consular Officer. Depending on the nature of the document, the Consular Officer will either “take an acknowledgment” that your signature was done freely and with an understanding of the document’s contents or “administer an oath” whereby you swear or affirm the contents of a document are true.
Note: Consular Officers do not certify that the contents of submitted documents are true. The officer only certifies that you have made an oath or affirmation that they are. As a general rule, the Consular Officer only certifies true copies of documents issued by the US Department of State.
The charge for notarial services is $50 per seal, and the fee for each additional seal is $50.
Fees must be paid in U.S. dollars or Namibian dollars depending on the exchange rate and only cash is accepted.
