What is Notary?

To accept the documents internationally, they should be legalized or formally proved to be valid and genuine. For this purpose, several countries require documents or copy documents to be certified by a Notary Public to ensure it is accepted overseas.

In Australia, a highly-experienced and senior legal practitioner is recognized as a Notary. Authorized to prepare, attest, verify, witness and certify original and copy legal documents. Notary attested documents are accepted internationally and make the process more smooth and faster.
