If you're an American and live or are traveling in Shangai, it can be incredibly difficult to find a US notary public.
Traditionally, you've been required to visit a US Embassy or military base. These locations require an appointment and there can often be a multi-week wait to see a notary public. If you're interested in trying to schedule an appointment, you can do it via the US Consulate site for Shangai, here.
You could also visit the Shangai US Consulate office in person here:
U.S. Consulate General Shanghai American Citizen Services Section
8th Floor, Westgate Mall, 1038 West Nanjing Road,
Shanghai China 200041
(Entrance at corner of Nanhui Road and Fengxian Road)
On the other hand, if you're not able to visit these locations or need a notary public more immediately while in Shangai, Notarize allows you to connect with a notary public entirely online to get a legal notarization.
The US Embassy or Consulate will charge $50 per notarized document. With Notarize it is just $25 per document and notaries are online 24x7.
