Popular questions

What is a notary public?

A notary public is a licensed attorney authorized by the government to confirm that a document is legitimate. Notarized documents may be needed when buying property, conducting business transactions, and relocating to a foreign country.

What does a notary public do?

A notary public’s job is to verify the identity of a person, witness the signing of documents, affirm the legitimacy of those documents with a stamp or seal, and in some cases administer oaths. A notary public performs these duties as an unbiased witness with the purpose of deterring fraud.

Why do you need notarized documents in Thailand?

As Thailand is a business hub in Southeast Asia and home to people from all over the world, many people need the services of a Thailand notary public. Just like in any country or bustling city, companies and individuals need notary services for contracts, legal documents, power of attorney, and trusts. Also, as Thailand is home to millions of foreigners, expats also may require notarized translations of important documents. In general, notarized documents are often required in Thailand by institutions, like schools, banks, foreign embassies, and government offices.

Who can notarize a document in Thailand?

Unlike most countries, notary public’s authorized by the government do not exist in Thailand. Instead, a licensed attorney who has undergone further training and certification to become a Notarial Services Attorney can perform notary services. A Notarial Services Attorney must be authorized by the Lawyers Council of Thailand.

Can a notary public advise on related legal issues?

It depends on the country. For example, in the United States, notary publics aren’t allowed to provide legal advice of any kind, including answering questions about different types of notarial certificates. However, in Thailand, because the person providing notary services is a licensed attorney, he or she can provide advice on related legal issues.
