JP Services

NSW JPs can witness interstate documents from another State or Territory where this is also permitted by the law of the other state or territory.

  • Please bring the original document, and provide the photocopy/ies for certification. Electronically issued documents can only be certified where they are downloaded and printed from the issuing website in front of the JP. You may therefore wish to bring your own electronic device or use one of the library’s computers.

Witness a statutory declaration under the NSW Oaths Act 1900, an Australian affidavit, or a Commonwealth of Australia statutory declaration.

  • For NSW statutory declarations, please bring photographic identification with you.

Witness signatures on legal documents and administering oaths as authorised by a NSW legislation.

  • If your document does not indicate the relevant NSW Act or NSW Regulation authorising the JP to witness your signature then please find out the details from the issuing body or your legal professional. If the NSW Act or NSW Regulation cannot be identified then the JP will not be able to witness the document for you.


Important Information

NSW JPs can certify copies of original documents from overseas.

NSW JPs are not authorised to witness the execution of international documents for use overseas (incl "Proof of Life"), instead find and contact a Notary using this locator.

If you do NOT speak/read English please bring an interpreter.
