Client Services
During the outreach visits, we will provide the following services:

* Notarial services
– Statutory declarations for marriage, retirement visas, and witnessing for driving licence renewals
– Witnessing documents
– Certified true copies of documents (please ensure you bring the original and a photocopy of each document with you)

Note: If you are signing a Statutory Declaration in support of a retirement or other visa, you are not required to provide proof of income. However, it is an offence to intentionally make a false statement in a statutory declaration.

* Fee Payment – Credit or debit card payment is preferred.

Further Information –

Please contact the Consular section on 02 344 6300 or email – consular.bangkok@dfat.gov.au – prior to your visit if you require further details and/or to confirm fees payable.

There has been an increase in notarial fees from 1 January 2017. Notarial fees are legislated according to the Consular Fees Act 1955 and consular staff have no discretion in applying these fees.

Please note that the Embassy is unable to confirm the length of validity of signed Statutory Declarations as this is a matter for Thai authorities.  We advise you to contact the Thai Department of Consular Affairs  for further advice on Statutory Declarations or Thai Immigration about their policy on validity or requirements.
