Certification of documents
  • You can have copies of original documents certified at any police station, at any time.
  • The certification of copies is done free of charge.
  • You must provide your own copies. The police station’s resources such as photocopy machines and paper, are not for use by the public.
  • You must provide the original documents when requesting to have copies certified. Copies will not be certified if the original documents are not produced for verification.
  • Please be patient. Remember that the police station has certain priorities to deal with, and it might take a while before they can attend to you.
  • Alternatively, you can have copies certified at the following places:
    • Lawyers or notary public (who are members of a recognised professional body)
    • Actuaries or accountants (who are members of a recognised professional body)
    • Members of the judiciary 
    • Directors, managers or company secretaries of a bank or regulated financial services business.
