Does the Embassy notarize documents?

The Embassy provides notarial services in various forms. The Embassy can provide an acknowledgement, wherein a consular official witnesses the signing of an instrument such as contracts, authorizations, and Special Powers of Attorney (SPA).

A consular official of the Embassy can also affirm that the signatories of a document have attested to the truth of statements in affidavits, petitions, and other such documents. This is called authentication.

For all notarial services, please submit a copy of your valid Philippine passport along with the document to be acknowledged/authenticated.
