Notarial Services

Notarizing officers in the American Citizens Services Unit can provide assistance similar to the functions of a notary public in the United States.  Officers can also authenticate documents notarized by Cuban notaries for use in the United States.

To make an appointment for services in Havana, you may do so directly via our online appointment system. If you are unable to utilize our online system or need help with your existing booking, please contact the American Citizens Services Unit at (+53) 7839-4100 for further assistance.

To have a document notarized, you must come in person with the following items:

  1. The document(s) to be notarized, unsigned as you will sign in front of the notarizing officer.
  2. A valid government-issued photo ID such as a passport, driver’s license, or Cuban ID card (carnet).
  3. $50 USD per notary seal needed. Payment must be made in U.S. dollars (USD) or corresponding amount in Cuban Pesos (CUP).
  4. If your document needs to be witnessed, you must arrange your own witnesses and each must bring a valid photo ID.  Consular Officers cannot serve as witnesses.
