Australia Post Certification Service

Get your relevant documents certified at selected Australia Post offices

Customers who need to lodge evidence with Registrars are now able to have copies of relevant documents certified at selected Australia Post offices.

This requires taking the original evidence document to an authorised Australia Post outlet so that a copy of it can be certified. Every page of the evidence document must be certified.

Australia Post will:

  • ensure that the document is an authentic original
  • make a photocopy of the original (all pages)
  • certify that it is a true copy of the original document and has been sighted by Australia Pos
  • return the original and the 'Australia Post certified copy' to the customer.

Australia Post will not send the certified copies to Registrar offices. It will be up to the customer to pass them onto their legal representative or settlement agent, or to submit the certified copies when lodging their title dealings.

Australia Post will charge the following fees:

  • first document $4.95
  • subsequent documents $2.95.

Note that this service is not available at all Australia Post outlets. See the Australia Post website for details.
