The Australian Embassy in Portugal provides a limited range of notarial and documentary services for Australians in Portugal. In many cases, local notaries can provide services at rates which are set by the local Portuguese Notary Society. In some cases, accessing these services may be more convenient than travelling to the Australian Embassy. If you still prefer the Australian Embassy to provide the services, a list of the fees levied by the Australian Government is published here and you will need to make an appointment.
Please ensure that documents relating to the notarial services you require from the Australian Embassy are presented in the correct form and that you provide the correct instructions for the notarial service you require. If you are unsure of the legislative requirements relating to the notarial service you require, you should seek independent legal advice. Please note that neither the Australian Government nor the Australian Embassy in Portugal guarantees the legal effectiveness of the notarised document or the accuracy of its content. Fees paid for notarial services are non-refundable.
