Notarial act of representation

All Dominican consular delegations offer public notary services to citizens that need legalised documents to comply either with the Dominican law or that of any other country.

Dominicans and foreigners who require that a proxy acts on their behalf either in the Dominican Republic or elsewhere can request a notarial act of representation in a Dominican consulate.

A notarial act of representation is a document through which a citizen or institution (a principal) entrusts a proxy to represent them before the institutions of the Dominican Republic or another country for any civil action the citizen or institution needs to perform.


Please provide:

  1. Dominican identity and electoral card
  2. Dominican passport
  3. Identity document of the principal
  4. Information as specific as possible about what the representation is for, that is to say, all those actions that the principal requires the proxy to perform on their behalf
  5. Information that proves that the principal has the legal capacity to ask the proxy to do something on its behalf concerning any property, whether movable or immovable (title deed, bank account, financial certificate, etcetera)
  6. Full name and surname, identity document and address of the proxy
  7. Any other information that may be of interest
  8. A witness

Note: to be valid in the Dominican Republic, the notarial act of representation must be certified with an Apostille at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MIREX).

PROCESSING TIME: Same-day delivery, subject to the urgency and volume of applications.
