Notary Public

Confused about Notarial Services? Yes, the process can be complicated.

Loh Eben Ong tries to simplify Singapore Notary Services

In general, you need to engage a Notary Public who will assist you in performing the Notarial acts (eg. to certify true copy / original of documents, witness your signatures, attest true likeness). The Notary Public will then issue a Notarial Certificate, and apply for an SAL Authentication Certificate (to authenticate the Notary’s signature). You can go to SAL to get the SAL Cert or ask us to do it for you for a fee. You may need to do further legalisation at MFA and/or relevant Embassy in Singapore.

This is prepared by the Notary Public and the formats of such certificate vary from Notary to Notary, and time and effort is expended by the Notary and his staff in the preparation of the Notarial Certificate and binding the notarised document to the Certificate. It is not uncommon for Foreign Agency to supply a prescribed specimen content of a Notary Certificate. The current prescribed fixed fee of a Notarial Certificate in Singapore is S$75.

Apostille is certificate which verifies and confirms the seal and signature of person who authenticated the document. Not all countries can issue Apostille, but only the countries who had signed ‘Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents’.

As Singapore is not a party to the Convention, Singapore Notary Public cannot issue Apostille.

An alternative to Apostille is the Singapore Notary Public will issue a Notarial Certificate, usually to be authenticated by the Singapore Academy of Law, and then further legalised by the releavant foreign Embassy in Singapore. Sometimes, there is a requiement to be legalised by the Singapore’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) prior to the legalisation in the Embassy. You are advised to check with the Foreign Agency requesting for the legalised documents as to their requirements.
