A commissioner for oaths is available in the Clerk’s Office and Legal Affairs Department to authenticate your official documents.

Official documents

To be valid, certain official documents must be stamped with a seal by a commissioner for oaths. For example:

  • Consent letter
  • Statement of ordinary residence
  • Life Certificate
  • Accommodation Certificate

The appropriate forms are available at the reception desk at City Hall and must be signed in the presence of the commissioner of oaths. This attests to your solemn declaration as to the authenticity of the contents of the document.

You must provide a photo ID bearing your signature. A $5 fee is payable.
