Will you bind my documents?

Yes, we will bind your documents if you have multiple pages, and your documents must be legalised, by authentication or apostille, through the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). The binding will include a notary certificate.

How will you bind my documents?

If your documents need to be bound, or we attach a notary certificate to your documents, we will bind your documents with ribbon and secure the ribbon to your documents or our notary certificate with our seal. This form of binding will be accepted by DFAT and by most foreign offices and countries all over the world.

What about DFAT binding?

In addition to or instead of us binding your documents, DFAT may also bind your documents if you require authentication or an apostille and you have more than one document or if we attach a notary certificate to your documents. Please be aware that DFAT charge a different fee for bound documents. Sometimes if you have many pages, binding your document will be a cheaper option than stamping each page separately.
