Consular Officers abroad provide notary services similar to the functions of a notary public in the United States. This service is available to both U.S. and foreign citizens who need to have documents notarized for use in the United States.
To have your documents notarized at the U.S. Embassy, you must follow the procedures detailed below:
Since the United States and Cyprus are parties to the Hague “Apostille” Convention, authentication of all public documents issued in one country must be apostilled there to be accepted as authentic in the other. Information on how to obtain a Hague apostille on public documents issued in the United States is available at the US Department of State, Legal Considerations website.
Note: For any public documents issued in Cyprus that will be used in the United States, an apostille can be obtained at the Ministry of Justice and Public Order of the Republic of Cyprus.
Please make sure your documents are in order before visiting the Embassy. Guests who require use of the Embassy photocopier will be charged USD $1.00 per photocopy.
