With the current COVID-19 situation, the Registrar of Titles has provided some guidance on alternative witnessing provisions that can be used to assist in witnessing of documents, where document lodgement cannot be delayed. For example, where the transferor or mortgagor is in COVID-19 related self-quarantine or self-isolation.
These alternative witnessing provisions can be found at https://www.business.qld.gov.au/industries/building-property-development/titles-property-surveying/titles-property/help/transactions/signing-witnessing
