Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Notary Public?

Notary Public are generally qualified lawyers who have at least 15 years of continuous legal practice experience in Singapore and are appointed by the Board of Commissioners for Oaths and Notaries Public to provide notary services to the general public.

There are also notary public, albeit fewer in numbers, who are appointed to provide notary public services to government departments.

How long does it take to notarise a document

The Notary Public has to witness your signing or certify your document as a true copy. The duration may vary depending on the time taken for him to explain the document, procedure and
the time taken to process the notarisation, which involves endorsing on your document,
submitting information online to the Singapore Academy of Law, issuing a Notary Certificate
and bundling the Notary Certificate on your documents.

For general guidance only, you should set aside approximately 15-30 minutes of a document
and about 30-45 minutes for 2 or more documents. For numerous documents or multiple sets
of documents, the Notary Public may request that you collect the documents on the next
working day.

It is therefore imperative to notify the Notary Public in advance in the event that you have many
documents for notarisation so that he can plan your appointment with him accordingly.

How much does it costs

The notary public fees are fixed by law in Singapore. The list of fees charged by Notary Public for certain notarial services are set out in the First Schedule of the Notary Public Rules
(https://sso.agc.gov.sg/SL/NPA1959-R1?DocDate=20170210&ProvIds=Sc1-.#Sc1-).

For witnessing a document, the notary fee is $40.00 for a person, $20 for second party and $10 for each additional party to the same document. If there is any exhibit, the notary fee for each exhibit is $10 per exhibit.

For examining and certifying a document is a true copy of the original (where a notary public is
requited to affix a seal), it is $10 for the first page and $2 for each subsequent page. Where the
notary public is not required to affix a seal, the notary fee is $5 for the first page and $1 for each subsequent page. Similarly, if there is any exhibit, the notary fee for each exhibit is $10 per exhibit.

While the notary fees for witnessing and certifying true copies are fixed by the Notary Public Rules, the Notary Public can charge reasonable fees for other notarial acts which are not fixed
by the Notary Public Rules.

Do I need a Notary Certificate

The Notary Public will charge for issuing a notary certificate for each document that has been notarised (i.e. witnessed/certified as true copy). This is required by law for all notarised documents with effect from 15 February 2017 onwards.

The costs for issuing a Notary Certificate is $75 for each notarised document and this is in addition to the notary public fees.

Do I need authentication by Singapore Academy of Law

All notarised documents must be authenticated by the Singapore Academy of Law. This is mandatory since 1 October 2019. The authentication service is being performed over-the-counter at the office of Singapore Academy of Law which is located at 1 Coleman Street, #08-06 The Adelphi, Singapore 179803 and their operating hours are from 9.00 am to 4.30 pm, Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays). In view of Covid-19, authentication by Singapore Academy of Law is strictly by prior appointment only.

The authentication fee for each notary certificate is $85.60 which is collected by the Notary
Pubic before he issues the notary certificate.
