FAQs – Documents

Written documentation is at the heart of all notary public services. Everything that we provide in relation to our notary public services relates to some kind of document or another that will be used in other countries outside of Australia.

Generally, if you are signing a document then your document should be prepared in accordance with the laws of the intended destination country, or to the satisfaction of the person/organisation that may be receiving the document.

Always get legal advice

Consult a qualified lawyer in the intended destination country to ensure that you receive the right advice. If you are signing your document in Australia, or if you need an Australian document to be certified and/or verified, then because of the connection with Australia that document will need to be notarised by a notary public in Australia.

As a leading provider of notary public services in Sydney, we regularly deal with documents from all over the world and in many different languages. Our experience with providing notary public services means we are familiar with the requirements of common intended destination countries such as India, Malaysia, Singapore, China, Philippines, Fiji, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, United Arab Emirates, Croatia, Bosnia, Poland, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Argentina, Venezuela, Chile, and the United States of America.
