Other consular services
Notarial and documentary services
The British Consulate-General São Paulo may be able to offer notarial services, for example administer an oath, affirmation or affidavit; witness a signature; make a certified copy of a document, unite documents; legalise a document. Where local notaries can provide services, the British Consulate will not provide them. In many cases local notaries or lawyers can provide services more cheaply, quickly and conveniently.
