Documents for Use in China Requiring A Notary Public

Because of the increasing trade between Australia and the People’s Republic of China, there is a growing need for the international certification of documents for use overseas in the People’s Republic of China. China is the most populous nation on earth and for years has seen double digit economic growth which has meant the establishment of substantial commercial and political links between Australia and China.

There are a range of documents which are used in the People’s Republic of China, Hong Kong and Kowloon which can have a requirement for notarisation. If you are located in New South Wales and you need to have any of the following documents for use in China notarised so that they can be used there, we can assist with this process.

Certified True Document
Witness Signature
Consent to Travel Passport Application
Permanent Resident Card Application
Statutory Declaration for Passport Application
Affidavit of Marital Status (Non-spouse)
Succession Declaration & Authorization
Succession Right Disclaiming Declaration
Custodianship Declaration
Declaration of Identity
Declaration of Birth
Power of Attorney
Certified Translation
Affidavit of Financial Support
Letter of Invitation for Temporary Resident Visa

There are a number of other different types of documents which might need to be used in China that require notarisation for tax purposes, in relation to the marriage or divorce or regarding inheritance and succession. We can also provide translation services if necessary. We have staff that are native speakers of Mandarin and can assist with the process. Please see the pricing part of this site for pricing of notarial services. We have established relationships with the local chinese consulate in Sydney Australia which can assist with the expedited processing of applications like this. As many solicitors are aware, it is necessary to get an apostille from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade for documents being transmitted to China because China is a signatory to the Convention abolishing the requirement of legalisation for foreign public documents which means that the signature of the notary can simply be authenticated by the Australian Department of Foreing Affairs and Trade.
