Notarize United States documents at the US Embassy in Bosnia & Herzegovina
To notarize a document at the United States Embassy in Bosnia & Herzegovina , 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.

What Notary Services Can Be Completed at the United States Embassy in Bosnia & Herzegovina ?
Affidavit: An affidavit is a sworn statement, prepared by the affiant (you). Affidavits are used in many different situations for many different purposes. We cannot prepare affidavits, and we cannot advise on the specific language needed in individual cases. Please consult a lawyer or other advisor for that type of assistance before bringing affidavits to be executed. Do not sign the affidavit before you come to the Embassy since you will be required to do so in front of a Consular Officer, whose role is to confirm the identity of the person making the statement.
Power of Attorney: 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.
Acknowledgement of Signature: An Acknowledgement of Signature or Acknowledgement of Execution is a notarial service which verifies that a particular person signed a given document. It is often used for legal agreements, business documents, etc. It is also used when more than two signatures are required on the document but all of the parties who must sign are not present. We can notarize (or acknowledge) only the signatures of those who are present to sign in front of us or appear in front of us and verify that they have signed the document.
Authentication of documents sealed and signed by the Bolivian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. This service is only provided at the Embassy in La Paz.
