Embajada de Australia

Notarial Services

Notarial services are provided by the Australian Embassy in Bogota. Notarial services include authenticating and certifying documents, witnessing signatures, taking of statutory declarations, affidavits, oaths and affirmations, and other services.

Before requesting a notarial service, please make sure you know what service you require and confirm this with the organisation that requires your documents. We cannot provide advice on the notarial service you need.

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 upon exchange rates. Cash and cheques are not accepted.


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.
