I live in Belgium. Can I claim to the French Consulate in Belgium the act of notoriety I need to recover bank funds that belonged to my recently deceased father?

No, since 1 January 2005 (decree of 6 December 2004), the notarial powers of diplomatic and consular agents are no longer exercised:

- in the territory of the Member States of the European Union,

- in the territory of the Member States of the European Economic Area: Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway,

- in Andorra, Monaco, Switzerland and near the Holy See.
