Documents which are to be used overseas often need to be prepared or certified by a notary. Notaries are authorised to prepare and certify many different types of document, to be produced in other countries. Every country has its own requirements as to how legal documents are prepared, executed and certified. Our notaries are well qualified to advise on the varying formalities involved. Where appropriate, documents and notarial certificates can be prepared in the languages of the jurisdiction concerned.

A wide range of documents require notarial intervention to be used overseas including powers of attorney, affidavits, declarations, copy passports, education and other certificates, travel consents, documents relating to overseas property or foreign inheritances, marriage documents and civil status documents.
