What is a Notary Public ?

A Notary Public is a person appointed by the Supreme Court to witness certain documents and to act for parties in non-contentious matters.

When a Notary Public certifies or witnesses a document, he/she is said to have “notarised” the document. It can also be referred to as a “notarial act”.

When do I need the services of a Notary Public ?

The services of a Notary Public are usually needed when a client is signing a document for use in a country other than the country in which the client resides. Often the signing of such a document will need to be witnessed by a Notary Public. This is a person whose signature is internationally recognized and accepted.

For what kind of transactions do I normally need the services of a Notary Public ?

You will normally need a notary where you are signing documents for use in a foreign country or where you need to send a certified copy of documents to a foreign country.

The normal types of transactions where a Notary Public is needed are as follows,

    • Buying and selling foreign property or real estate
    • Setting up bank accounts in another country
    • Contracts for sales or supply of goods and services in a foreign country
    • Authenticating documents for use in a foreign country
    • Witnessing of affidavits or declarations for use in a foreign country
    • Executing powers of attorney
    • The making of a ships protest – this is a document recording the occurrence of an incident on board a ship (Maritime Law)
    • Foreign adoptions – normally a Notary Public will be required to certify identity documents and authenticate other documents required by a foreign adoption authority where an Irish couple are adopting a child from a foreign country

The list of transactions and matters is non-exhaustive. The fee charged by a Notary Public varies according to the type and amount of work undertaken by the Notary Public.
