U.S. Embassy Seoul currently offers limited notarial services due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. To best serve U.S. citizens with urgent needs, please check first whether your document can be notarized elsewhere or by the Ilyang courier service.
The Embassy prioritizes notarial service appointments for U.S. citizens and those who have business before a U.S. government agency that requires notarization by a U.S. Consular Officer (e.g. federal benefits, passport issuance, etc.). You may consider the following options before scheduling an appointment:
Notarial services are provided by appointment only. Notarial needs are not considered to be an emergency. If you arrive at the Embassy for a notarial service without an appointment, you will not be allowed to enter. Please do not sign the form before you come to the Embassy. You will need to sign it in front of a Consular officer. Please see our appointment page. Unfortunately all forms are no longer available on our website. We will provide necessary forms when you make an appointment to visit us.
Applicants visiting the Embassy will be allowed to check in only one cell phone and one set of electronic car keys before entering the building. No other devices will be permitted, and the Embassy has no capacity to store them. Please leave these items at home or store them before arriving for your appointment.
