Notarial Service Fee Increase from 1 January 2017
From 1 January 2017, the cost of notarial services provided by the Australian High Commission will increase. New fees will range from AUD 70-AUD140, depending upon the service required. For some services, such as the witnessing of documents, there are local alternatives available to clients, for example through medical practitioners or police officers. However, clients should always consider what arrangements will be acceptable to the authority to which the documents will be submitted.
Note this is the first time notarial services have increased in 16 years. The new fees take into account the annual rate of inflation in Australia since that time, the growing cost of delivery of notarial services and the rising demand. The new fee structure better aligns with fees charged by commercial providers and will be indexed annually from 2018.
A full list of notarial and passport services provided by the High Commission, including applicable fees, can be found here.
If you have any queries about notarial services please contact the Australian High Commission at email@example.com.
