Before the notary public is able to assist you with your matter, you should consider whether you will be able to satisfactorily identify yourself before you attend our office.

Unless you know the notary, we recommend that you bring photographic identification documents such as a passport or an Australian driver licence with you to your appointment.
You should note that the notary will not be able to accept foreign identification documents without specific supporting local or international identification documents.
In addition to providing us with sufficient identification, you will also need to provide the notary with your personal information which they will retain along with copies of your identification documents.
