We provide document notarial services, by appointment. 

Current notarial services fees are listed here.

Fees are payable for notarial services in accordance with the Consular Fees Act (1955).  

Please note we are a cashless office and only accept payment of fees by credit card or bank transfer/deposit.  If you wish to pay by bank transfer or deposit please email us to obtain our bank account details and confirm the current fee payable for the service.


Notarial services include:

  • witnessing and taking of affidavits, oaths or affirmations
  • witnessing you signing Commonwealth statutory declarations and other Commonwealth forms (some state government forms and private sector forms are also allowed to be witnessed by DFAT staff)
  • witnessing applications forms for, and issuing of, Certificates of No Impediment to marriage (CNI)
  • witnessing notices of intended marriage
  • legalisation of signatures and/or seals on Australian public documents (apostilles and authentications)
  • certifying true copies of documents (that are either Australian or intended for use in Australia) or photographs (needed to accompany Australian forms)

If you are signing a Statutory Declaration in support of a retirement or other visa, you must provide proof of income such as a bank, superannuation fund or Centrelink statement.

Please ensure that documents relating to notarial services you require from the Australian Consulate-General 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 Consulate-General Phuket guarantees the legal effectiveness of the document or the accuracy of its contents.
