Do I need to make an appointment for you to witness me signing my documents?

We would highly recommend this. It will ensure that your work gets handled in a timely manner. Call us at 6532 9980 or send me an email to fix an appointment.

Can I use a document that you have witnessed in another country?

Generally, no. A Commissioner for Oath, is only allowed to administer oaths/affirmations for documents that will be used within Singapore. For documents which are going to be used in another country, you would need to have them notarised  by a Notary Public.

How long will you take to witness the execution of my document?

If you have read the document and have completely understood the contents and there is no need for the document to be interpreted, the process could take a couple of minutes at the very most.

Must I be present at your office or can I just sign the document and send it to you?

You must be present in our office for our Commissioner to witness your signature.

Are your fees negotiable? Can you give me a discount?

No, the fees are prescribed by law and are therefore, not negotiable.  The giving of discounts is also not allowed.

Can you certify a document to be true and correct?

No, this can’t be done. A Commissioner for Oaths can only administer oaths/affirmations in the case of affidavits or take declarations in the case of statutory declarations.

However, the Commissioner can certify your documents in his capacity as an Advocate & Solicitor or in his capacity as a Notary Public, if the documents are intended to be used in another country.


If you would like to make an appointment with us or just speak to us over the phone to see if we can meet your requirements, just call or send us an email with your questions/requirements and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
