If you're an American and live or are traveling in Brazil, 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 Brazil, here.
You could also visit the Brazil US Consulate office in Rio De Janeiro in person here:
Rio De Janeiro (RDJ)
Avenida Presidente Wilson, 147 Castelo
Rio de Janeiro, RJ - 20030-020
