Certified documents

What is a certified document?

A certified copy is a duplicate of a document which a person who of professional standing has noted that is a genuine copy of the original document.  The certified copy means that it is a true copy of the original.

What does certifying an identity document actually mean?

Certifying a document involves getting it signed and dated by a professional person.

Where can I get my documents certified?

As your documents will need to be certified by a professional person, examples of those who can certify your documents include:

  • A solicitor
  • A bank or building society official
  • At a post office
  • A councilor
  • A minister of religion

Who is not allowed to certify a document?

Documents cannot be certified by any of the following:

If you are unable to supply the above then please speak to your solicitor who may be able to suggest alternative acceptable evidence.
