What are Notaries and Certified True Copy?
A Notary is a person licensed by the government to perform acts in legal affairs, in particular witnessing signatures on documents. Such documents can include Power of Attorneys (POA), Contracts, Agreements, Affidavits and the like.
Certified true copy refers to the notary ensuring that the documents are true copies of the original. Documents involved here can be passports, marriage/birth certificates, certificates of incorporation, educational certificates and more.
Why would you need documents Notarised?
You might need documents notarised, or documents to be certified to be true copy in various situations.
For example, if you are accepting a job offer overseas, your employer might require your educational certificates and other documents (such as the police clearance form) to be notarised. This would mean having a notary public sign and stamp your documents to certify that it is true copy. The purpose is to show that your documents are legitimate and to prevent fraud or identity theft.
Usually, the organisation you are dealing with will inform you in advance if you need to get your documents notarised.
