A Notary Public or Public Notary is a practising lawyer (with a minimum of five (5) years practising experience), who is appointed by the NSW Supreme Court, and given statutory powers to witness documents, administer oaths, and perform other wide-ranging administrative functions of a national and international nature. A Notary Public not only takes oaths, signs and witnesses documents for use within Australia, but also performs similar functions in respect of international documents.
