Notarial Services

Please note: The Department of State assumes no responsibility or liability for the professional ability or reputation of, or the quality of services provided by, the entities or individuals whose names appear on the following lists. Inclusion on this list is in no way an endorsement by the Department or the U.S. government. Names are listed alphabetically, and the order in which they appear has no other significance. The information on the list is provided directly by the local service providers; the Department is not in a position to vouch for such information.

Important Reminder: Starting January 5, 2015 the Embassy in Kuala Lumpur requires appointments for all notarial services. Please bring your appointment confirmation sheet and arrive at the embassy 10 minutes before your appointment time. Make an appointment through our website at:

We can provide most of the same notarial services that a notary public is authorized by law to perform within the United States.  Services are available to U.S. citizens and to foreign nationals with documents intended for use within the U.S.

Please bring the following to the ACS Unit when requesting notary services:

  • The documents to be notarized, including attachments, if any.
  • Your passport and one other photo identification.
  • Witnesses, if required.  (Consular staff are not allowed to serve as witnesses.)
  • $50.00 or the equivalent in Malaysian ringgit for each seal. Notary fees can be paid in cash or by credit card.

All blank spaces (other than signatures) must be adequately filled in before the document can be notarized.  We have blank affidavit and acknowledgement forms available for your use, but cannot provide any advice on wording any document or completing any forms.

Be advised that we cannot certify any civil documents (e.g., birth, marriage and death certificates) or any documents issued by government authorities in Malaysia or the U.S. (e.g., drivers licenses) except through authentication, which is a complicated and time-consuming process.  We also cannot certify any educational documents, e.g., diplomas and transcripts.
