Who Is a Notary Public?
A Notary Public is an appointed official who notarises or authenticates documents for use out of jurisdiction. Notarised documents are typically used to conduct business overseas, or for applications to overseas organisations. Once the documents are verified by the Notary Public in Singapore, the Notary Public will issue a signed and sealed notarial certificate, which serves as an indication to the overseas organisation(s) receiving the said documents that they have been properly authenticated and verified.
The role of a Notary Public includes administering oaths and affirmations, witnessing the execution (i.e. signing) of documents, certifying true copies of documents and verifying of identities, among others. All these are done to prevent fraud.
All About Notarised Documents
Notarised documents refer to documents that have been authenticated by a Notary Public. Before documents are notarised, the Notary Public will first need to verify the identities of the involved parties, ensure the willingness and understanding of the parties signing the documents, and then finally witness the signing. For Certifying of True Copies of documents, the Notary Public will have to compare the original document with the photocopied document to ensure that they are identical copies, before certifying the same.
Notarised documents in Singapore will have a notarial certificate affixed to them, which will bear the signature and seal or stamp of the Notary Public. This certificate should also have the Notary Public’s full name, his or her status or appointment, attestation of the involved parties, and the date of notarisation.
Once the Notary Public notarises the documents, they are submitted to the Singapore Academy of Law (SAL) for further authentication and legalisation (if necessary). Certain documents may also have to be verified by the relevant Embassy, Consulate or High Commission.
