How to find a notary overseas

If you’re an American and live or are traveling abroad, it can be incredibly difficult to find a notary public overseas.

Historically, you’ve been required to visit a US Embassy or military base. As most people discover overseas, these are often difficult to locate. They also require an appointment and there can often been a multi-week wait to see a notary public. When you’re buying a home, selling a car or completing another of life’s most important transactions, the delay in seeing a notary public overseas can be a deal breaker.
