Notarial Services

Notarial Services Provided by the Australian Embassy in Bogota

The Australian Embassy in Bogota provides various notarial services to Australian citizens and others. These services include:

  • Authenticating and certifying documents
  • Witnessing signatures
  • Taking of statutory declarations, affidavits, oaths and affirmations
  • Other notarial services as required

Before requesting a notarial service, it is important to know exactly what service you require. Please confirm this with the organization that requires your documents, as the embassy cannot provide advice on the notarial service you need.

Fees for Notarial Services

Under the Consular Fees Act 1955, fees apply to notarial services. In Colombia, fees are payable by Visa or Mastercard in Colombian pesos only and may vary on a monthly basis, depending on exchange rates. Cash and cheques are not accepted.

In-Person and Mailed-In Services

Notarial services can be provided in person at the Embassy or via mail. Please bear in mind that some services, such as witnessing signatures, must be done in person.

For information on mailed-in notarial services, please call us at +57 601 657 8030 or send us an email at [email protected].
