Please note that notarising a document today involves the same anti terrorism and anti money laundering formalities as applied to opening up a new bank account. The rules are very strict. You must prove your identity by providing your original current passport and proof of address by means of a utility bill not more than 3 months old. This does not mean that you are under suspicion but rather that it is a duty to be discharged by all Solicitors & Notaries Public under legalisation in order to out law money laundering and financing of terrorism.
