    No. Notaries are licensed in specific areas, and cannot legally notarize documents outside of that specific area. The only place in the Philippines you can get a legal US notary is the embassy or consulate.

    This subject came up on the board a year or two ago, when someone claimed to be legally notarizing US documents here. I looked up the actual law on this, so if you search the forum you may find it.

    According to the Philippine constitution, a foreigner cannot practice law in the Philippines. Perhaps he is Fil/Am?
