In order to ensure that you have everything that is required of you, it is always advisable to check with the overseas receiving entity which will be receiving your notarised documents.
Many clients assume that they have the correct set of documents, or are working on information from unofficial sources. However, in almost all cases it is recommended that you contact the intended recipient of your documents and obtain their specific requirements.
Some clients attending their scheduled appointment for notarial services arr unsure of what documents are required of them. In these situations, the client is made aware that the Notary is only qualified to act in their particular Australian State and work within Australian law, and are not always the best source for providing forms and determining which documents are required for the particular overseas country with which the client might be liaising. While the Notary is happy to help, he or she cannot always provide all the answers concerning the requirements of foreign organisations and countries.
In most cases, contacting the relevant Embassy or Consulate before your appointment is advisable. The Embassy or Consulate can often provide information as to where to source the required forms and give examples of necessary documents.
