We offer a full range of Notary Public services in Singapore. Please note that due to COVID-19 we are unable to serve walk-in clients. You must contact us ahead of time to arrange a suitable date and time. We will try to accommodate your requirements as much as possible.
Due to the often complex nature of fees and processes involved, we advise that you contact us to outline what you need, and then we can provide you with a summary quote for your consideration. Most Notary Public fees are FIXED under law, and will not differ from one Notary to the next.
Please note that as of February 2017, a Notary Public is required to issue a notarial certificate for each document that they verify. In Singapore, this notarial certificate will cost an additional $75, payable to the Notary Public.
In addition to this, as of October 2019, all notarised documents must also be authenticated by the Singapore Academy of Law (SAL). The SAL charges an authentication fee of $85.60 per notarial certificate. The Notary Public will collect this fee from you before issuing you the notarial certificate.
As an example, if you needed to certify a single page document, such as a passport, the total fee would be as follows. $10 to certify one page of the passport as a true copy + $75 for the Notarial certificate + $85.60 for authentication, payable to SAL. Total cost would be = $170.60.
