Yes, it will be. We did ours at a Notary Public in the Philippines, where they witnessed the signatures.Hi all,
My partner and I are applying for a prospective marriage visa. We're both currently abroad and sending in our NOIM from overseas. We're in a country that does not have an Australian embassy and noticed we could get our NOIM signed by a notary public. Do they have to be related to the commonwealth in any way, we're currently in Guatemala, and just want to check a notary public here, say a lawyer, would still be valid.
if a party signs the Notice outside Australia-an Australian Consular Officer, an Australian Diplomatic Officer, a notary public, an employee of the Commonwealth authorised under paragraph 3(c) of the Consular Fees Act 1955, or an employee of the Australian Trade Commission authorised under paragraph 3(d) of the Consular Fees Act 1955.
