All notarial appointments must be booked via the online booking system here for all notarial services including services that can only be performed by an Australian Diplomatic or Consular Officer, including the witnessing of photo kits and affidavits. If you require the certification of a document as a true copy (that is no witnessing of a signature or any other verification for property or Australian banks) you are still required to make an appointment via the online booking system. Some notarial services can only be performed at the Australian High Commission in Singapore between 9:30am to 11:30am Tuesday and Thursday only, excluding some Singapore and Australian Public Holidays.
For Property/Land Transfer notarial services, Consular officers will only perform the requested service when written instructions from the Australian Legal Practitioner are presented to the consular officer in conjunction with performing the witnessing and certifying functions for a transaction involving land or property. This includes the request for the sign the DFAT Identity Certificate form is sometimes required by the state or territory agencies, and can only be completed by our Consular officers when written instructions from the Australian Legal Practitioner and generally when another service is performed including witnessing/certifying. If written instructions are not presented to support the request for the completing of a DFAT Identity Certificate (and witnessing/certifying services), the service may be declined.
Please be advised the High Commission can only perform the limited range of notarial services for Australian documents, or foreign documents intended for use in Australia. Please refer to the Smartraveller website at www.smartraveller.gov.au for updated information regarding notarial services.
Please note that consular staff cannot provide advice on specific legal requirements, including what documents need to be signed or certified. Correct documents should be presented to officers and clear instructions should be given on your particular requirements. Please see the link below to the disclaimer.
