 - a declaration which includes the purpose for which it is intended and identification of the person who will physically ask for the criminal record on your behalf (with BI, with CC, with foreign ID, with any ID) and signed in person at this Consulate General (link reconhecimento assinatura).

Option 2

Requested at this Consulate General (processing time may take more than 3 months).
