A “Notary Public” in the common law is a public officer constituted by law to serve the public in non-contentious matters usually concerned with estates, deeds, powers of attorney, and foreign and international business. A notary’s main functions are to administer oaths and affirmations, take affidavits or statutory declarations, witness and authenticate the execution of certain classes of documents and perform certain other official acts depending on the jurisdiction.

There is no notary public system in Thailand. The Lawyer Council of Thailand established the regulations on Signature and Document Attestation to train lawyers, who will perform the duty to certify signatures and documents, as so-called “Notarial Services Attorneys”.
Thailand presently is not a signatory to the Hague Convention on Legalization of Foreign Public Documents. Individuals who have engaged notarial services in Thailand may also need to have the notarized document authenticated at the Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA).
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs presented guidelines relating to Signature and Document Attestation by Notarial Attorneys dated May 21, 2009 to ensure the authentication of documents used overseas.
Korat-Legal provides notarial services to Thai nationals and foreign nationals for documents that will be used overseas. Our Notarial Attorney provides a signed certificate of authenticity for a variety of documents to individuals and institutions.
