Document Notarisation Services
Let us take care of all your and legalisation requirements (including queuing at your Embassy) accurately, efficiently and cost effectively.
Our team is experienced in handling every stage of the document legalisation process, ensuring your corporate and private documents will be legally recognised abroad.
Whether you or your Company are entering into cross-border commercial contract/investment or expanding your organisation overseas (including joint ventures, setting up a foreign branch office or subsidiary, etc.), the original documents approving these activities must be notarised by a Notary Public. (A lawyer or law firm permitted to issue Notarial Certificates for documents intended for overseas use, and to certify true copies of a document in a foreign language). A Notarial Certificate provides assurance that a document, originally produced and/or signed in Singapore, has been deemed to be authentic by a registered Singapore Lawyer and Notary Public.
However, in some cases, the foreign party for whom the documents are intended may seek further assurance of a document’s validity and verity. In this case, they will require the documents to be legalised and endorsed by the Singapore Academy of Law, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the foreign party’s Embassy in Singapore.
Over the years, we have forged good relationships with Notary Publics, the Singapore Academy of Law and numerous Embassies. Our personal involvement in handling each legalisation assignment ensures that any issues or errors in the documents are immediately highlighted to us by the helpful staff.
If you require legalisation of your documents at any of the Embassies and Consulates in Singapore. Give our expert 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.
