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 – 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.
