Notarial Service (Legalising documents)
Notarial services are reopening a limited service. To avoid delays, you may wish to use the mail in service if you're eligible.
Notarial appointments will be available every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday between 1:00pm-3:00pm. You can book your appointment now online.
You may want to check with your receiving authority if they can advise of any alternative solutions during this temporary limited service.
We regret the inconvenience this may cause, but your safety along with the safety of our staff is our utmost priority in this difficult time.
About our services
All documents relating to the notarial services you require from the Australian High Commission must be presented in the correct form and you must provide the correct instructions for the notarial service you require.
If you are unsure of the legislative requirements relating to the notarial service you require, you should seek independent legal advice.
Please note that neither the Australian Government nor the Australian High Commission in London guarantees the legal effectiveness of the notarised document or the accuracy of its content. Fees paid for notarial services are non-refundable.
Notarial clients are admitted through security at the Consular & Passport Office entrance located on the Aldwych side of Australia House.
Security at the Australian High Commission
Security screening is in operation at the Australian High Commission in London and is similar to airport screening. To minimise wait times we ask that you do not bring large bags or accessories with you. There may be a queue to get through security.
The Australian High Commission does not have public restrooms or baby changing facilities.
