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 offered by the American Citizen Services Unit to the general public.  Such services include acknowledgements, authentications, affidavits and powers of attorney.  Appointments for notarial services are available between 10:00 – 11:00 weekdays, except for Wednesdays.  Please make an appointment for notarial services.

There is a $50.00 fee for each signature by our Consular Officer or Consular Agent.

Please note that all persons requiring notarial services must present valid, government-issued identification, such as a passport or driver’s license.  Jamaican Voter Registration cards are accepted.  The name on the document to be notarized must match EXACTLY to the name on the I.D. card or passport.  Do not sign the document before coming to the U.S. Embassy.

For persons signing on behalf of a company, please bring the company’s Articles of Association issued by the local authorities.  If you cannot bring this document or are not listed in it, please bring other evidence of your  relationship to the company.

If you are a process server or have been asked to serve papers on an individual, it will be useful for you to read the information on the “Serving Papers” section of our website.

Documents that require authentication should first be taken to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
