Notary Services
 

All services requiring a personal appearance in Taipei and Kaohsiung are by appointment only. Appointments must be made online. Please follow the links below.

Notarial services performed at AIT are primarily for documents used in the United States.  We can provide notarial services to any person regardless of nationality.

Notarization:

To have your signature notarized on a document you must appear in person and present valid photo identification that matches the name on the document. (For example, we cannot notarize the signature "Jane Chen" if Ms. Chen can only present identification with the name "Chen Mei-Li".) All forms, certificates, documents, and signatures must have the same name listed, or a legal name change document must be presented. If you plan to sign the document in English you must provide identification that includes your English name.

The U.S. requires a notarized statement of consent from any parent not appearing in person to apply for a passport on behalf of a minor under the age of sixteen. We do not charge a fee for this service. Download the consent form.

Each person signing a document must be mentally aware and competent, able to clearly explain the contents of each document without prompting, and demonstrate unpressured an voluntary desire to execute the document.  Documents cannot be notarized if the above criteria are not met.  Do not sign any documents in advance. 

If you wish to have your signature witnessed, you must provide your own witnesses.  AIT employees are unable to act as witnesses.

Authentication:

We can authenticate the signatures of Taiwan notaries whose signatures we have on file. To find out if we have a signature on file, please email our office at amcit-ait-t@state.gov
