NOTARIAL SERVICES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY IN PORTUGAL
Notarial and documentary services provided by the British Consulates in Portugal are now available by appointment only, using our easy to follow on-line appointment facility.
This helps your enquiry to be dealt with quickly and efficiently by consular staff, ensuring that delays are avoided and also saving you time if the Consulate is unable to provide the service you need. Where there is no formal requirement for a service to be provided by the Consulates, local notaries or lawyers can often provide these services.
A step-by-step guide to using the British Consulate’s on-line appointment booking system can be found on our website www.ukinportugal.fco.gov.uk using the quick link to notarial services, where you can also find a helpful video guide.
