Australian High Commission


Certification of documents

Consular officers can provide certified copies of documents. The Australian High Commission uses a stamp with the following wording on our certified copies: “this is a true copy of the document presented to me”

Unfortunately we have no discretion to use alternative wording. Should you require alternative wording you might consider approaching a Justice of the Peace, Notary Public, or other specified professional, to perform the service for you.

  • Please be aware that some jurisdictions allow only the originator of official documents to certify copies of those documents and as such, it is your responsibility to ensure that the end user of the certified copy of a document will accept the copy.
  • Please bring original documents only.
  • There is no need to make copies.
  • The documents presented do not have to belong to the person submitting the documents at the Australian High Commission.
  • It is the responsibility of the client to present the document(s) in the correct form, and to provide the correct instructions.
  • Please note we are unable to endorse any photographs.
  • You need to book an appointment to certify documents here.  

Fees are charged for this service.

Please note: Certifications required for Australian visa and citizenship applications should be certified by a Notary Public in Singapore. A list of Singapore Notary Publics can be found in the Yellow Pages. For further information please refer to the visa and migration website
