Certified Copies

Obtaining certified copies of documents

The Australian High Commission in Wellington and the Australian Consulate-General in Auckland can make certified copies of original documents. Some Authorities will only accept certified copies made by certain persons and it is your responsibility to ensure that the Authority to whom you are sending the documents will accept a certified copy made by an Australian mission.

We will only make certified copies of original documents which we have sighted. We will not make certified copies of photocopies.

An appointment is required prior to attending the High Commission (Wellington) or Consulate-General (Auckland). All appointments can be made via our online booking system: https://passports1.gettimely.com/book. You may bring the documents in person, or you may post the original documents in with a cheque for the required fee. If mailing the documents to us, your documents and the certified copy will be returned to you by a signature required trackable courier pack.
