I am from the US, but definitely the requirements as I read them would not allow documents to be certified by someone like a teacher or dentist. I am not sure how someone like that can certify a document. All my documents were notarized by a notary public.

Good luck!

I think the teacher/dentist etc are options on the list of authorised people to confirm your identification on certain forms. For example those professions are allowed to confirm and sign the identification of the people who write your stat decs. But for making a certified photocopy of your passport, birth cert or something like that, you should use a notary public as CPMaverick suggested.

In Australia, you can use all sorts of people and you'll find a list in the Applying for this visa section of a visa, there being a link re help for filling in forms or something like that.
Here I've usually found a desk sargeant at the local cop shop to be the most convenient.

For other countries if you're in the UK it's whatever the regulations in that country provide for.
Perhaps the HO or whatever department it is that does immigration for the UK will have a list of authorised people.
