Apostille, Notarises and Attest Affidavits and Declarations South Africa

Affidavits signed before Notary and Legalised for use outside South-Africa

An affidavit is a written declaration of facts that is sworn by an “deponent” in front of a Notary Public or Commissioner of Oaths.

Why are they needed?
Evidence for court matters or other legal procedures often needs to come in the form of an affidavit. They are valuable because when someone swears an oath, or makes an affirmation, before a Notary Public it becomes a criminal offence to lie in the contents of the affidavit. Thus, third parties have an additional level of security when receiving information in this form. Further, A notary is required to verify the identity of the “deponent” before notarising the document. In this way, the person receiving the document is assured that the paper was in fact signed by the correct person and not by an imposter.

We can notarise your affidavits quickly and easily. For a small additional fee, we can also draft affidavits for your convenience. This can be done on the spot – without further appointments being necessary. The whole process is quick and easy for you.


A statutory declaration is a legal statement made by one person in the presence of a notary public. This statement of fact is recorded in a written document and signed by both the person making the statement and the Notary Public witnessing the process. They are very similar to affidavits and the two terms are often used by overseas authorities requesting you make a sworn statement.

Statutory declarations are made for many reasons. You can legally declare a statement of fact on a wide range of subjects.

  • Changing their name

  • Confirming their own identity with passport information
