Australian Embassy

Notarial Services

Notarial Services  (กรุณา คลิกที่นี่ สำหรับภาษาไทย)

The Australian Embassy continues to welcome notarial, passports and consular clients as we closely monitor the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We ask those who have recently returned from overseas, or who are feeling unwell, wait for the 14 day recommended quarantine period to pass before making an appointment. Clients displaying symptoms of being unwell may be refused entry and requested to return in 14 days.  

The Australian Embassy is unable to witness a statutory declaration, provide a letter, issue a statement or certificate verifying your address in Thailand. We suggest you contact Thai Immigration to request a certificate of residence or speak with the authority requesting the address verification to discuss what other options are available to prove your address. This includes to open a Thai bank account, obtain a driver’s license or transfer motor vehicle registration.


Passport and Notarial Services by appointment ONLY, Monday to Friday between 8:30am and 12:30pm (subject to appointment availability and excluding Embassy public holidays).
