Consulate of China Related Notary Services
The People's Republic of China is not a member of the Apostille convention, which means that the process of submitting Documents to the Consulate of China in Melbourne involved a few extra steps:
- Documents need to be notarised by a notary public.
- Documents need to be authenticated by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs.
- Documents would be submitted to the The Consulate General of The People's Republic of China in Melbourne, at which they will receive their third stamp: the legalisation of the documents by the Chinese government.
Please note that the sumbission those documents does not need to be in person.
It is also worth mentioning that the Chinese Consulate charges higher fees for business documents than for private or family related ones.
