About Us

The Society of Notaries of Victoria is one of the oldest continuous societies in Australia.

The Society represents the practising Notaries Public in Victoria. Notaries are an ancient branch of the legal profession who have special knowledge and experience in matters which cross international boundaries.

The 'Find a Member' link will take you to lists of our members.

Like other legal professionals, notaries rely on their clients to provide them with all of the factual details necessary to find a solution to their needs. Usually this will include details of your passport, address and particulars of your foreign documents.

All of these documents will need to be produced to the notary in the course of a transaction and you must present them personally to the notary.

All information to be found on this site is provided by the notaries themselves, and is necessarily general.If you have a specific query, you should raise it with a notary during the consultation.

The fees charged by notaries are discretionary, but there is a recommended scale of minimum charges. When you contact a notary he/she will advise you of the relevant fee.
