Notarial Services, including witnessing, certifying issuing legal documents
Notarial services are procedures which facilitate legal recognition of documents in Australia. A limited range of notarial services can be provided by the Australian Consulate-General in Noumea. These services are for Australian documents, or foreign documents intended for use in Australia.
It is your responsibility to ensure you present the correct forms and documents and provide correct instructions. If you are unsure, consider seeking legal advice. Neither the Australian Government nor the Australian Consulate-General in New Caledonia can guarantee the legal effectiveness of the document or the accuracy of its contents.
Please also check Certificates of no impediment to marriage for documents issued by the Australian Consulate-General for marriages.
Please note notarial services are on appointment only and that fees apply. Fees paid for notarial services are non-refundable.
From 3 April 2017, fees are payable only by credit or debit card (American Express is not accepted), in Pacific Francs (XPF).
Please contact us for current fees converted to Pacific francs (XPF).
