What is a Notary Public Lawyer?
Notary Public lawyers are appointed by the Supreme Court of Australia. They can certify true copies and witness signatures of various power of attorneys, certificates and certificates of applicants. They are mainly used to replace the originals to prove the authenticity of the documents to relevant agencies.
Note: Notary Public cannot help the organiser write or review documents and are not responsible for the content of the documents. The organiser is obliged to find out the specific local requirements for documents and prepare relevant materials according to these requirements, so as to ensure that the certified documents can be used legally in the country. In addition, according to the law, if a document is to be notarised, the original document must be provided, otherwise notarisation services cannot be performed.
What is Apostille?
Apostille is an international legal certification process. The purpose of Apostille is to prove the authenticity of documents and to enable the certified documents to be transferred and recognised among all Hague member countries. The apostille process in Australia is handled by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT).
The process of applying for Apostille certification in Australia:
An Australian Notary Public lawyer will notarise the document（witness the signature of the parties or notarise a true copy）and issue a notarisation certificate.
The notarial certificate and documents are submitted to the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs (DFAT) for Apostille certification.
It takes approximately 2-4 weeks to complete the entire apostille certification process.
(This is a predicted time and will vary depending on the progress of the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs’ DFAT processing).
