Office of a Notary Public








A notary public is a lawyer authorised by the Archbishop of Canterbury of England to officially witness signatures on legal documents for use overseas. An embossing tool (seal) is used to verify documents signed in his presence or to certify that the original document has been sighted and is a true copy.

I am a notary public registered with the New Zealand Society of Notaries

Proof of Identity / Documentation

When visiting a notary public it is important to have two formal forms of identification with you, ideally your passport and photo drivers licence and/or proof of residence. To certify copies of documents the original needs to be sighted.

Authentication / Apostille

In some cases documents once signed by the notary will need to be sent to the Department of Internal Affairs in Wellington for authentication / Apostille. – this is an official government certificate that proves the signature, stamp or seal of a Notary on a document is genuine.

You can check if Authentication / Apostille is required by the country to which you are sending the documents at$file/e-Apostille-flyer.pdf - it usually takes up to 7 working days.

The necessary form can be obtained online or I can let you have a copy of the form when notarising your documents.
