If you are in Bahrain and need to notarize a document that is to be used in the United States, there are two options available to you.

Another option is to find an online notary public who is authorized to perform notarizations for U.S. documents online and has the ability to verify your identification. In most cases your documents can be notarized and delivered to you in minutes, and you can be anywhere in Bahrain that has a stable internet connection to complete the notarization.

Notarize United States documents at the US Embassy in Bahrain 

To notarize a document at the United States Embassy in Bahrain , it is important to schedule an appointment in advance. This is because most embassies operate on a strict schedule and may not have availability for walk-ins or last-minute requests. It is advisable to plan ahead and book an appointment to ensure that the notarization process goes smoothly. However, if the document that requires notarization is time-sensitive and waiting for an embassy appointment is not feasible, then it may be faster to opt for an online notarization or remote ink notarization service. These services allow for the notarization to be completed remotely and can be scheduled quickly to accommodate urgent requests.

Who Can Notarize United States Documents at the Embassy in Bahrain ?

Consular officials at any U.S. embassy or consulate abroad can provide a service similar to the functions of a notary public in the United States. Like a notary public, the consular official must require the personal appearance of the person requesting the notarial service; establish the identity of the person requesting the service; establish that the person understands the nature, language and consequences of the document to be notarized; and establish that the person is not acting under duress. In addition to the usual functions of notaries related to oaths, affidavits and acknowledgments, U.S. consular officials authenticate documents, a governmental act, which is not performed by notaries in the United States.

What to Bring?

If you have a power-of-attorney, affidavit, sworn statement, acknowledgement of execution, etc. that must be signed in the presence of a notary public, you may make an appointment using their online appointment system and you must come in person to the Embassy with the following:

The document, completely filled in except for your signature and notarization section
Your passport and/or another form of government issued photo ID (the name on the document’s signature line must match the name on the ID)
If your document requires a witness signature, please bring an (unrelated) friend or colleague with you.
The fee for each notary seal is US$50 or the equivalent in Bahraini dinars. This is payable in U.S. dollars, dinars, or by credit card.

What Notary Services Can Be Completed at the United States Embassy in Bahrain ?

Power of Attorney (POA)

A power of attorney allows you to designate someone to take legal actions on your behalf. A common example of this is empowering someone else to buy or sell property in the United States in your name while you are overseas. We cannot advise you on the specific language or content of a power of attorney, so you may wish to consult a lawyer or other appropriate advisor before coming to see us to have your power of attorney notarized.

Blank affidavit and Power-of-Attorney forms are not available at the Consular Section. Please fill out the form before you come to the office, but do not sign the form. You will need to sign it in front of a Consular Officer. It is encouraged to have all documents prepared before your visit to the Embassy. Please note that each signature costs $50. There may be two signatures on one sheet of paper; the cost would then be $100. Or, your document could have fifty pages, but if there are only three places for a notarization, then the cost is $150.

If you are not a U.S. citizen, your document must be for use in the United States.
