What is a Notary Public?

By Bernard Furidzo

A Notary Public is an officer of the law who holds an internationally recognized public office. Recognized in most countries, the signature and seal of a Notary mean that specific documents or transactions have been approved and sanctioned by a responsible and trusted legal officer.

A Notary’s work always has an international connection, typically involving authentication and certification of deeds and other documents for overseas use. This means they are verified to the satisfaction of persons, corporations or government organizations virtually anywhere in the world.

When Do You Need a Notary Public?

Just about anyone may need the services of a Notary when they are involved in business overseas or in a private matter with an overseas connection. If you are an individual, you may need help in a range of situations, from overseas property transactions and overseas pensions claims to proving your identity. If you are a business, you may need help with situations such as setting up a company overseas, proving the status and powers of a company’s officers, or submitting tenders in other countries.
