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.
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.
