Thailand Notary Services
In most countries, a Notary Public is known as an official who is licensed by the State to perform functions such as the authentication of signatures or documents, and the witnessing of affidavits or statements of persons under oath. Notarization of a document is important as the act of notarization itself creates a guarantee on the authenticity of the document, or to the act of the signatories to the instrument.
While there are no notaries public in Thailand, some lawyers are given the authority to function as Notarial Services Attorney in the country. In Thailand, it is the Lawyers Council of Thailand which regulates the practice of notarial services in the State. A Thai lawyer is required to undergo and pass a professional training course for the service before he is registered as a Notarial Services Attorney.
Our Thailand Notary service is performed by our licensed Thai lawyers and can be performed for any number of specific verification tasks. We certify signatures, administer oaths, certify affidavits, depositions or testimonies and record notarial protests. Examples of documents commonly notarised are passports, contracts, bank statements, land title deeds, power of attorney, applications for international visa and others.

Authentication of signature and other ID such as passports
Authentication and certification of the execution of documents intended for international use
Witnessing contracts and other related documents
Certification of translations
Authentication of title deeds
Verification of documents
Power of attorney
Legalization of documents
As Thailand is not a signatory to the Hague Convention on Legalization of Foreign Public Documents, in some cases, parties who have engaged notarial services in Thailand may need to have the notarized document authenticated or legalized further at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Thailand, or at the Embassy of the country to which the document is to be presented.
