Please ensure that documents relating to notarial services you require from the Australian Consulate-General, are presented in the correct form and that you provide the correct instructions for witnessing any signatures on the documents. If you are unsure of the legislative requirements relating to witnessing signatures on a particular document, you should seek independent legal advice. Please note, by witnessing a signature on a document neither the Australian Government nor the Australian Consulate-General in Chengdu guarantees the legal effectiveness of the document or the accuracy of its contents.
Under the Consular Fees Act of 1955 a fee applies to notarial services. Consular Fees are updated on a monthly basis with floating exchange rate.
All fees can be paid with EFTPOS, Ali Pay and WeChat Pay. The current fee schedule is available here.
Selling or buying land or property in Australia
It is a requirement that written instructions from your legal representative in Australia be provided in addition to the land documents you need witnessed or certified. Where instructions from your legal representative are not provided, the service will be declined.
More information is available from Smartraveller under the "Selling or buying land or property in Australia" section.
The Consulate can only witness an Australian Statutory Declaration for use in Australia by an Australian entity.
Statutory Declarations must be written in English, however clients may include their own translation within the space provided prior to signing.
