Notary

In all Embassies and Consulates of Spain abroad Spanish and foreign citizens can provide notarized documents (deeds and minutes) in front of a diplomatic official in notarial functions, which will take effect before any authority in Spain without further legalization or authorization, neither by the Consulate that authorized the document nor by the Legalization Section of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation.
It is also possible to provide notarized documents in front of a local notary of the country where the Spanish citizen is residing, and then proceed to legalize it (see "Legalisations").

To request the issuance of a notarized document at this Consulate General, you must send us the application form granting notarial deed duly completed along with photocopy of ID and/or passport both the grantor and the proxy and specially the minutes for (model or draft) prepared by your lawyer or notary.
