Get My True Copy Certified At Cheap Price In Singapore

The process of getting a certified true copy is notarising and/or legalising documents which might otherwise need to be used for ICA submission. These processes informally come under the heading “certified” copies because they indicate that all parties involved have seen proof beyond doubt as opposed for example, just signatures on paper or manually entered data alone.

Certified copies are different from simple photocopies in that they require the intervention of a Notary Public or other authorised person to certify that the copy is a “true copy” of the original document.

The Notary Public will sight the original document and certify that it is a “true copy” of the original. The Notation “Certified to be a true copy of the original seen by me” or words to that effect, together with the Notary Public’s name, signature and official seal will be stamped on each page of the copy.

To certify a document as a “true copy”, certain steps have to be carried out by the Notary Public:

  • The Notary Public must sight the original document;
  • The person who presents the document to the Notary Public for certification must swear an Oath or make an Affirmation before the Notary Public that the document is a “true copy” of the original;
  • The Notary Public will then sign and stamp on each page of the copy of the document with his/her official seal

If you are going to use the document outside of Singapore, you will need to get it legalised. To legalize a document means to certify that the Notary Public’s signature and official seal on the copy of the document is genuine. This is done by the Embassy or High Commission of the country where the document is going to be used. They will affix their official seal on the document to certify the Notary Public’s signature and official seal.

Need For A Certified True Copy By ICA Singapore

The Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) is the government agency responsible for immigration matters in Singapore. One of its main functions is to issue travel documents such as passports and visit passes to Singaporeans and foreigners.

There are occasions when ICA may require applicants to submit a certified true copy of certain documents instead of the originals. This is usually for documents that are not in English, or when the originals are not available.

A certified true copy is a copy of a document that has been certified by an authorised person as being a true and accurate copy of the original document.

For Singaporeans applying for a passport, they will need to submit a certified true copy of their NRIC as well as birth certificate.

Foreigners applying for a visit pass to enter Singapore, they will need to submit a certified true copy of their passport and travel documents.

Certified true copy services are thus needed to support ICA’s operations in document verification.

Notarisation and/or legalisation is the formal procedure of proving that documents are genuine copies.

When you need to authenticate or execute a document, notary publics are the professionals for your needs. A certified legal professional with experience in Singaporean law will handle all aspects of certification from start-to-finish - certification as a genuine copy of an original document through execution on behalf parties involved at any level!

We will first certify that the document is an accurate copy of the original. The notary public will then add their signature, date and official seal to the document. This makes the document binding in a court of law.

It's a broad category that covers many services, some of the services offered by us are as follows:

  • Certifying that a copy of a document is a true copy of the original
  • Executing documents on behalf of parties involved
  • Attesting signatures on documents
  • Witnessing signatures on documents
  • Legalisation

Once your documents have been notarised, we will then move on to the legalisation process. The final step is to have your documents authenticated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Document issued by Government) or by Singapore Academy of Law (Document that is NOT issued by Government).

They will affix its official stamp on your document, which is also known as an apostille. This certifies that the document has been legally executed and is now ready to be used for ICA submission.

For documents that are not in English, we will also provide a sworn translation service. This is where the document is first translated into English by a professional translator. The translator will then certify that the translation is an accurate and true representation of the original document.

Ans. Notarized copies are more formal and carry more weight than certified copies. A notarized copy is a photocopy of an original document that has been notarized by a notary public. This means that the notary public has verified the identity of the person who made the copy and that the copy is accurate.

A certified copy is a photocopy of an original document that has been certified by an authorized person, such as a school administrator or government official. This means that the authorized person has verified the identity of the person who made the copy and that the copy is accurate.

Both types of copies are legal documents, but a notarized true copy is more formal and required by the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority of Singapore.
