any help would be good

I used a lawyer at work to certify all of my documents but then read that they only need t be certified if they are not colour copies (this was in a letter from DIAC).

 

I would guess that colour copies are much cheaper than paying for certification.


Submitted 4 Feb 2011 (176 Fam)/CO allocated 26 September 2011/Medicals on 18th October/all documents uploaded by 27th Oct and medicals showing as complete........Visa granted 7November! Wahoo!

Hi Paul

 

We just took all of ours to a local solicitor and she charged us £5 for signing half a dozen docs.

A main post office can certify your documents and there is normally no charge.

I used a local solicitor. No problems. They did charge £2 per copy which I thought was not bad :0)


Living our dream :biggrin:

Hi Paul

For the Nursing council (AHPRA) your documents have to be certified bu a Notary Public - they will not accept anything else.

 

I am currently going through this process myself and i sent all my documents stamped by a notary public except my stat dec to say I was taught in English - that i used a solicitor and they e-mailed me Friday to say I have to have it re-done by the Notary!

 

This will be the third time I've been to the Notary and it's cost me £240 so far - he has quoted me £40 for the stat dec! Arrrrggggghhhh!! :arghh:

 

So take my advice and get it all done bu the Notary in one go.

Good Luck

I have had to get my documents done for medical colleges and it has to be notarised. An ordinary solicitor won't do - has to be notary. Stat dec had to be redone by the notary too after I had it witnessed by a nurse as notary wouldn't notarise it unless he also signed it and colleges wont accept unless i had it notarised. Both notaries I used charge a minimum fee for an appt £50 then a few pounds per extra document etc. if I had got my stat dec.s correct it would have been £120 all in but return for 2 stat dec,s put me back another £60.

Alright well according to the ANMAC website legal practitioner is able to certify documents which includes solicitors. So.... all very confusing saves some cash too......

I asked the notary the difference between certifying and notarising. Basically certifying is fine if done within the same country I.e if certified by an Australian nurse/lawyer etc but for papers going international it needs to be a notary or they may refuse to recognise. I don't know if he was just saying that to justify his payment :-)

on the AHPRA

 

Outside Australia, the following people are authorised to certify documents:

 Justice of the Peace

 Notary public

 Australian Consular Officer or Australian Diplomatic Officer (within the meaning of the Consular Fees Act 1955)

 Employee of the Commonwealth or the Australian Trade Commission who works outside Australia.

 

 

justice of the peace...does it mean local courts as well???

A stat dec is a statutory declaration

 

Statutory declarations are commonly used to allow a person to affirm something to be true for the purposes of satisfying some legal requirement or regulation when no other evidence is available.

Usually it is something you write yourself. What type of statutory declaration do you have to do?

I think all nursing and midwifery registration applications now all go through AHPRA

http://www.ahpra.gov.au/

 

If you go to http://www.ahpra.gov.au/Registration/Registration-Process/Overseas-Practitioners.aspx this tells you how to register and how to certify your documents.

 

good luck
