In a nutshell, a Notary Public is a person recognised by law as being able to certify and witness documents, administer oaths and carry out a range of other administrative functions nationally and internationally.
A Notary Public uses an official stamp and notarial seal to notarise official documents. The Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) holds a copy of a Notary’s seal and signature so that, where applicable for a particular country, an Authentication Certificate or Apostille Certificate can be provided as to the authenticity of the Notary’s signature and seal.
