Unlike most Commonwealth countries, South Africa is one of the few countries for which an apostille is required to be attached by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs. This process should be handled in care in order to avoid incurring a unnecessary costs. Consulting with professionals and lawyers in South Africa can save a lot of time and trouble, as they can outline which specific documents required to be both notarized and have an appostille attached to them.
For example, attaching an apostile is common for a power of attorney, however, other transfer documents may not require one and would only need to be notarised.
We have the knowledge and expertise to help you throughout the process but we do recommend consulting with a lawyer in South Africa, before booking an appointment with us, in order to come prepared and not waste your time and money.
