If you have a power-of-attorney, affidavit, sworn statement, acknowledgement of execution, etc. that must be signed in the presence of a notary public, you may make an appointment on our online appointment system and come in person to the Embassy with the following:
- The document, completely filled in except for your signature and notarization section
- Your passport and/or another form of government issued photo ID (the name on the document's signature line must match the name on the ID)
- If your document requires a witness signature, please bring an (unrelated) friend or colleague with you.
- The fee for each notary seal is US$50 or the equivalent in UAE dirhams. This is payable in U.S. dollars, dirhams, or by credit card.
Blank affidavit and power-of-attorney forms are not available at the Consular Section. We encourage you to have all documents prepared before your visit to the Embassy.
A note about Medallion Signature Guarantees: Unfortunately, consular officers are not authorized to provide a signature guarantee/medallion guarantee service. A Medallion Signature Guarantee is not a notary service, but a special procedure related to securities which can only be performed by an authorized representative of a financial institution participating in a medallion program approved by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission may be contacted at www.sec.gov.
