Australian High Commission

Witnessing Signature

Witnessing a signature

Consular officers at the Australian High Commission can witness signatures on certain legal documents.

As each document is different, consular officers at the High Commission are not able to provide advice on the requirements of your particular document. It is your responsibility to check with the originator of the document whether an Australian Consular Officer is able to witness your signature on the document.

If you are not able to use our services, you may wish to seek a notary, lawyer, or other specified professional in Singapore to perform the services for you.

Please ensure that documents relating to the notarial service you require from the Australian High Commission are presented in the correct form and that you provide the correct instructions for witnessing any signatures on the documents.

If you are unsure of the legislative requirements relating to witnessing signatures on a particular document, you should seek independent legal advice. Please note, by witnessing a signature on a document, neither the Australian Government nor the Australian High Commission guarantees the legal effectiveness of the document or the accuracy of its contents.

Fees apply for all services.
