A notarial certification is amongst the highest level of certification you can receive from a lawyer or public official. This is partly due to the additional training and expertise required of notaries. When a notarised document is received abroad, it can reassure the recipient that the correct authentication has been carried out. For most transactions concerning South Africa, a notarial certification is not required, and a commissioner for oaths certification will be fine instead. We can provide commissioner for oaths certifications in certain circumstances on request.
