Hi Everyone,

I need US Notary ASAP. I called Embassy and they say "there is no open date for August"
I have no idea what they are getting paid for and what the heck they are doing all day.
So i need to go to Mexico or somewhere. Anybody has experience? Or any other way?
Thanks a lot

Are you on the island? We can arrange for a US notary at our office in San Pedro Town.

Typical left coast crap!
Reality is only an illusion that occurs due to a lack of alcohol

OK, Problem solved. I just want to share with everyone. You might need one day:

8/5 morning We called them and asked an appointment. They said appointments made by online only.
We checked their website and it showed all August is full. (they do notary only on Wednesdays)
We called them again and asked "really?" Of course no body explains how come they are full for notary service which is takes only 5-10 minutes. Or if they are this much busy, why only one day in a week?
(Mexico Embassy has every day)

8/5 afternoon: Before we purchase our tickets to Cancun (there is a consular agency)i just want to check one more time Belmapon's website. Guess what? All Wednesdays were open (for 2-3 people each day)

So, don't give up! Bother them.
Cheers everyone,

Mind you I'm not telling anyone to do this but: Last winter I had a closing to do in the USA from Belize. I did not tell any of the principals that I was in Belize. One form had to be notarized, so I had a friend in San Pedro notarize it. I believe she is from Montana. The form was scanned and sent in with the rest of the paper work and the closing went through without a hitch.

Technically not legal but........ how do they know where you are when you are communicating by phone or email?

ps My wife is a notary and has done a few. We know the people and they have not mentioned having problems with it.

I will tell you the fee when i go there. But so far because they gave us appointment by 8am, we need to go there one night before so stay in a hotel. So already there is an expense.
Regman, you are smart. i wish my escrow guys didn't know i am in overseas.
