American citizens and foreign nationals doing business with American citizens and/or corporations often require the services of a U.S. notary public. The Embassy provides notarial services to citizens and non-citizens alike. Those seeking notarial services are strongly encouraged to make an appointment with the Consular Section
to ensure that we can serve you promptly. Photo identification with signature (e.g., passport, driver's license, etc.) is required. If the document also requires witnesses, you must bring your own witnesses, each of whom should present identification. If you will be signing on behalf of another entity (e.g., as an officer or director of a corporation), you should bring proof (e.g., corporate minutes) proving that you are authorized to sign on behalf of the entity.
Please read the Department of State's general information on the types of notarial services provided at U.S. embassies and consulates overseas. The fee for notarial services is $50 for each signature to be notarized. Fees may be paid in cash dollars, the cash equivalent in Euro, or with certain credit cards.
The Embassy also can make certified true copies of documents for use in the United States. For example, the Embassy can make a certificate true copy of an Estonian citizen's passport for submission with Form W-7 to the U.S. Internal Revenue Service in order to obtain an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN). Persons seeking to authenticate a U.S. document should read our instructions on how to authenticate a U.S. document for use in Estonia .
