Western Sydney Low Cost Urgent Notary Services

    • STEP 1.  Destination Country

      Where are you going to be sending/using your documents? (including embassy/consulate/foreign office)

      Documents used in Australia generally do NOT need to be notarised and can be witnessed or certified by other prescribed witnesses (ie, Justice of the Peace). However, if you are sending your documents to a foreign embassy or consulate in Australia, this is still considered as sending your documents to another country (not Australia) and you should re-select the relevant country.

      Please call our office on 02 9687 8885 between 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays) if you have any questions regarding this notice.

      STEP 2.  Notary Work

      Do you need us to witness or certify your documents?

      Please choose carefully. Your choice changes the available options in this quoting tool and will lead to incorrect quotes if you chose incorrectly.
      'Witnessing' means you sign a document in front of us.
      'Certifying' means we verify the authenticity or certify a copy of a document.

      CERTIFYING

      We are only able to certify Australian documents or locally accepted foreign documents (ie, foreign passport). We cannot certify copies of any other documents from other countries. We will only certify documents issued by non-government organisations after we have verified the documents with the issuing organisation. You must provide us with original documents.

      WITNESSING

      'Witnessing' requires the person to personally sign in front of the notary. At the time of signing, they must prove their identity with photographic identification documents such as a passport or an Australian driver's licence. Our office does not provide 'additional witnesses' and the notary does not require those witnesses to be present unless it is a requirement of the document or the destination country.

      How many people signing the documents?

      STEP 3.  Document Type

      What type of documents do you need to notarise?

      SCROLL DOWN. Use "Ctrl" or "⌘" to make multiple selections. It is important that you choose the most relevant type of document(s) as this will assist us in providing the most accurate quote in response to your enquiry.

      Some documents must also be countersigned by the Indian Consulate / VFS. You should check with whoever you are dealing with in India (preferably your lawyer) whether this is required. If so, check with VFS as to whether your documents must also be stamped with an apostille from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade after they have been notarised. VFS has quite detailed checklists which you must follow otherwise your documents will be rejected. Unfortunately, our clients sending documents to India have experienced all different variations of the requirements and yet they all seem to be acceptable - so obtain the advice from India first (preferably from your lawyer).

      Documents intended for Mauritius generally also need to be stamped with an apostille from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade after they have been notarised.

      Currently, the Chinese Embassy and its consulates will not accept or recognise documents intended for Hong Kong or Macau. Instead, these documents must be stamped with an apostille by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade after they have been notarised. If you are still unsure, please check with your lawyer in Hong Kong or Macau before proceeding further or submitting this form.

      Since 7 November 2023, documents intended for China no longer require legalisation by the Chinese Consulate. Instead, all documents must be stamped with an apostille from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

      We are registered and recognised by the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office, Sydney to notarise documents intended for Taiwan.

      Documents notarised for Korea generally must be stamped with an apostille from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade after they have been notarised.

      Documents intended for Italy generally must be stamped with an apostille from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade after they have been notarised.

      Some documents for the US must also be stamped with an apostille from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade after they have been notarised. This requirement depends on the intended use and intended destination (ie, state and county).

      Documents for South Africa, especially the Power of Attorney, generally need to also be stamped with an apostille from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade after they have been notarised.

      Documents intended for most Middle Eastern countries will also need to be authenticated by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and then legalised by the embassy or consulate of the intended destination country. Please check the website of the relevant embassy or consulate for more information.

      As is the case with most European countries, it is likely that your documents will also need to be stamped with an apostille from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade after they have been notarised. If you are unsure, please seek advice from a lawyer in the intended destination country.

      It is likely that your documents will also need to be stamped with an apostille from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade after they have been notarised. If you are unsure, please seek advice from a lawyer in the intended destination country.

      It is likely that your documents will also need to be stamped with an apostille from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade after they have been notarised. If you are unsure, please seek advice from a lawyer in the intended destination country.

      Depending on your intended destination country, your documents may also need to be stamped with an apostille or authenticated by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and legalised by the consulate or embassy of the intended destination country. If you are unsure, please seek advice from a lawyer in the intended destination country.

      STEP 4.  More information

      Providing this information will be necessary since you wish to certify documents as different documents will have different requirements and affect the quote.

      Include a basic description of the document/notary work that you require.

      Number of documents (including copies)

      Total number of pages (ie, 2 documents of 2 pages each, enter 4)

      Total number of notary signatures (ie, even if you have been asked to initial every page, but there is only 1 signature page, enter 1)

      Does your document need to be bound with a notary certificate? (click here for more information)

      STEP 5.  Submit File (Recommended)

      To assist us in providing you with a quote. Please upload a copy of your documents for inspection. If you have more than 3 documents or any problems in uploading documents, please contact us on 02 9687 8885 to discuss your specific requirements. (PDF preferred - DOC, DOCX, RTF, TXT and JPG acceptable. Maximum size 1MB)

      STEP 6.  Additional Services

      In addition to notarising documents, please indicate whether you require a quote for our fees for associated services.

Other forms of identification can also be attested and notarised, but generally, other countries require photo identification in the absence of a national identity card system in Australia.
