Notarial Process & Timelines
Notarisation, is the process of a Notary Public affixing their signature and official seal to a document. This can be done to certify the signing of a document in their presence or to verify a fact or thing of which the Notary Public has certain knowledge of.
Generally speaking, documents that are to be used or submitted outside of Singapore will need to be notarised, whilst documents to be used within Singapore may only require a Commissioner for Oaths.
The individual or group of individuals signing the document(s) must present a valid ID such that the Notary Public can verify your identity. It is important also that you don’t sign the document in advance – it should be signed in the presence of the Notary Public.
By law, a Notary Public must also issue a Notarial Certificate for every document they attest to or certify as a true copy. For certified copies, more than one document can be bundled to one Notarial Certificate, and thus the total number of Notarial Certificates required will depend on the party where the documents are to be submitted. For witnessing of documents (but not certifying of copies) please note that Under Rule 8 of the Notaries Public Rules (Cap 208, R1), EACH document has be attached to a separate Notarial Certificate.
Each Notarial Certificate costs $75, and it is mandatory since 1st October 2019 that every Notarial Certificate be authenticated at the Singapore Academy of Law. This authentication fee is $86.40 inclusive of GST. This means the total fee for each Notarial Certificate issued will be $161.40.
