Notarial services provided by the Consulate are not available in Macau. Most notarial services are offered by the Macau Lawyers Associate (only available in Chinese or Portuguese) or the Legal Affairs Bureau. These offices should be able to assist Australians in Macau to have the documents notarised and Apostilled if required.
Please confirm with the receiver of the documents (bank, broker etc) what they will accept before undertaking these processes.
To have a document notarised (only issued in either Chinese or Portuguese):
· at one of the 3 Macau Government operated locations listed here (only available in Chinese or Portuguese); or
· through one of the law firms with registered public notary services.
To obtain an Apostille for use of the notarised document overseas:
· at the Legal Affairs Bureau (which can be issued in English).
