    Default Notary

    I will be in DR this week and I have papers I need to email back to the USA and they have to be notarized, I will be leaving today Saturday and all notarys are closed here in NY. Just curious do they have Notarys in Puerto plata or anywhere else up north? Even Santiago?

    From the US Embassy website:

    Notarial Services:
    In Santo Domingo, notarial services are provided by appointment only on Mondays and Thursdays (except on Dominican or U.S. holidays). Please send an email to [email protected] to request your appointment. You will receive an email response with your appointment confirmation. Such confirmation needs to be printed and presented the day of your appointment. Please keep in mind that only those individuals with confirmed appointments will be allowed into the Consular Section facilities.


    Applicants must bring their documents to be notarized to the Consular Section at 1:30 p.m. All applicants must pay the notarial fees at the Window 14 cashier, and wait to sign the documents in front of a consular officer.

    If you would like to make an appointment for a notarial service at one of the Consular Agencies, please email Punta Cana Consular Agency or Puerto Plata Consular Agency. If you experience technical difficulties or do not have access to internet, you may make your appointment by calling (809) 552-8990 for Punta Cana or calling telephone numbers (809) 586-8017, (809) 586-4204, (809) 586-8023 for Puerto Plata.

    There may be a difference between a regular notary and a DR Embassy notary.

    The government may accept only its own notarization.

    Not sure how it all works and the validity of it,  but there are plenty of online advertising.  

    Google 'online notary'. Plenty of sites to choose from.

    If you need a document notarized for something in the US, it is highly unlikely that a Dominican notary will work for that.

    There used to be a US Notary service available, done by the US Consul, in Puerto Plata. If that is not still available there, you will probably have to go to the US Consulate in Santo Domingo.

    Because you were notarizing a Dominican document! This thread is about American documents.

    Absolutely correct. If you cannot get it done here many airports in the US have notary services, just Google your airport. It is also cheaper to do at the airport than at the embassy or consulate here ($50). We recently had documents done at the Dallas airport with no problem.
