Consular Officer on behalf of the Consulate performs the notarial act of certifying a deed, contract or other documents including Power of Attorney (PoA). The Consular officer only verifies the signature of the applicant in respect of residents in the states of Bavaria and Baden Wuerttemberg.

  1. The executor can give PoA to his/her family members, relatives, friends to perform a particular action on his/her behalf in India.
  2. The names, contact address, telephone numbers and signatures of two witnesses known to the executor may be provided in the POA, However, for attestation purposes, witnesses’ presence or Photo ID cards are not required at the Consulate.
  3. A Power of Attorney can also be issued by joint applicants for which only one PoA should be prepared on which both applicants will put their signatures.
  4. Indian nationals can prepare the PoA with the help of any lawyer/legal expert on a plain paper. The PoA is not necessarily to be made on a stamp paper, while the executor is residing abroad. Indian Nationals are not required to authenticate the power of attorney from local authority.
  5. The Consulate reserves the right to reject attestation of documents the contents of which are objectionable or contrary to the Rules.
  6. Applicant (s) presence is mandatory for attestation of PoA, as he/she has to sign in front of the Consular Officer.
