Notarial Services

Please note: The Department of State assumes no responsibility or liability for the professional ability or reputation of, or the quality of services provided by, the entities or individuals whose names appear on the following lists. Inclusion on this list is in no way an endorsement by the Department or the U.S. government. Names are listed alphabetically, and the order in which they appear has no other significance. The information on the list is provided directly by the local service providers; the Department is not in a position to vouch for such information.

Notarial services are available for all documents destined to be used in the United States.  The only notary public overseas recognized in the United States is a U.S. Consular Officer.  You do not have to be a U.S. citizen to use this service.

Documents may include statements made under oath, power of attorney, affidavits, true copies, and acknowledgments.  Government-issued ID is required for persons signing documents.

A fee of $50 is charged for each notarial service, which can be paid in USD or the equivalent in CFA (As of June 27, 2017 30,000 CFA).
