Document Notarisation Services
Let us take care of all your document preparation and legalisation requirements – including queuing at your Embassy – quickly, accurately, and cost effectively.
Our team is experienced in handling every stage of the document legalisation process, ensuring that your corporate and private documents are legally recognised abroad.
Whether you or your Company are entering into a cross-border commercial contract, investing in foreign assets, or expanding your organisation overseas (i.e. entering into a joint venture or setting up a foreign branch office/subsidiary), the original documents approving these activities must be notarised by a Notary Public.
A Notary Public is a registered lawyer or law firm who is permitted to issue Notarial Certificates for documents intended for overseas use, and who can also certify true copies of a sighted original document in a foreign language.
A Notarial Certificate provides assurance to foreign recipients/requestors that a document, originally produced, signed and/or sighted in Singapore, has been deemed authentic by a registered Singapore Lawyer and Notary Public.
The Notary Public is also responsible for filing a record of each Notarial Certificate issued with the Singapore Academy of Law (SAL), referencing their professional number.
Need further endorsement?
Sometimes a client or a banking institution requires further proof of authenticity, and ask for your documents to be legalised by the embassy or consulate.
However, even with the SAL’s endorsement, the foreign party for whom the documents are intended may still seek further assurance of a document’s validity and verity. In this case, the documents may need to be legalised by Singapore’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the foreign party’s Embassy in Singapore.
Over the years, we have forged good relationships with Notary Publics and numerous Embassies. Our personal involvement in handling each legalisation assignment ensures that any issues or errors with the documents are immediately highlighted and remedied.
If you require legalisation of your documents at any of the Embassies or Consulates in Singapore. Give our professional document legalisation team a call.
Documents are given to the Notary Public for notarisation. Depending on the number of documents involved, the Notarial Certificate(s) for the original document(s) can typically be issued the following day (i.e. one business day later).
If you require witnessing and attesting of the signing of documents (e.g. a contract, Power of Attorney), or certification of your passport/documents as originals and as true copies, you will need to be present for this step.
