All consular counter services at the Singapore Embassy will be by appointment only. Please send your request for an appointment and the relevant documents to the Embassy via email at email@example.com. The Embassy will review your documents and provide you with an appointment slot.
The Embassy processes requests for notarial services on documents intended for use in Singapore. These services include witnessing of signature for Affidavit; Statutory Declaration and other types of documents (e.g. Power of Attorney, Singapore Authorities’ Forms, etc.), and certifying true copy of document. Generally, we do not perform notarial functions on documents which will be used in a country other than Singapore, unless it is a requirement by the local authorities.
Legalisation of Documents
On 18 January 2021, Singapore acceded to the Hague Conference on Private International Law (HCH) Convention of 5 October 1961 (“Apostille Convention”), abolishing the requirement of legalisation for foreign public documents. To operationalise the Apostille Convention, the Singapore Academy of Law (https://legalisation.sal.sg) is authorised to issue Apostilles for all Singapore documents bound overseas with effect from 16 September 2021.
As the Republic of Indonesia is also a party to the Apostille Convention, the Indonesia Ministry of Law and Human Rights (https://apostille.ahu.go.id) is authorised to issue Apostilles. With effect from 16 September 2021, documents with an apostille affixed can be presented in Singapore directly without further legalisation from the Singapore Embassy.
