Looking for a professional Notary Public?

Frequently asked questions

I wish to certify true copies of my documents, do I need to see the Notary Public?

No, you do not have to meet the Notary Public, but the Notary Public will have to see the original documents. You can choose to:

  1. Send us a soft copy of the documents that you need to certify and make payment online so that we can start preparing the documents. When the documents are ready for collection we will inform you, and you can bring the original documents along during collection so that the Notary Public can examine them (please note that you will need to make an appointment so that the Notary Public will be present to see you).
  2. If you can, drop off the original documents at our office during office hours and make payment either in person at the office or online. When the documents are ready for collection we will inform you (we can also arrange for the notarised documents and originals to be couriered to you), and you do not need to make an appointment to meet the Notary Public during collection.
  3. We can arrange for a courier to collect the original documents from you, and when the documents are ready you can either collect them from our office, or we can arrange for them to be couriered to you.

I wish to certify true copies of my documents. Other than the documents to be certified, do I need to bring any other documents such as my passport or identity card?

No, you do not need to bring your photo identification for certifying of true copies, just the original documents to be certified are required.

I wish to have the signing of my documents witnessed, what documents do I need to prepare?

Please have the following documents ready:

  1. The documents to be signed by you but please do not “pre-sign” the document in advance.
  2. The government-issued photo-ID as referred to in the document to be signed by you, i.e. a passport or national registration card.

I wish to have the signing of my documents witnessed, but it is not convenient for me to come to your office, can I still proceed?

Yes, we can arrange for video witnessing of the signing of your documents. Please note that for video witnessing we also must arrange for a courier to collect the document once signed. An additional fee of S$20 per courier trip applies.

I wish to have the signing of my documents witnessed but I am not in Singapore, can I still get my documents notarised via video witnessing?

We can still do the certified true copies if you courier the originals to Singapore, BUT we cannot do video-witnessing for the signing of documents if you are not in Singapore. If these documents are to be used in Singapore, we recommend that you get in touch with the nearest Singapore Embassy or Mission.
