Suspension of Apostille Services for 2017

Due to office closures over the Christmas and New Year period, we will be suspending our Apostille services from 1 December 2017. Apostille services will resume from 15 January 2018.

We will still be providing notary public services until 22 December 2017.

If you wish to obtain an apostille during this period, you will need to make your own enquiries with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) - however be aware that DFAT has traditionally been closed during the Christmas and New Year period or be short staffed. You should expect and plan for delays.
