Notarial service increased from 1 January 2017

Notarial service fees increased from 1 January 2017, following a recommendation from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade's Functional and Efficiency Review.

The new fee schedule takes into account the annual rate of inflation in Australia since fees were last increased, the growing cost of delivering notarial services and rising demand.  The new fee schedule (in Australian dollars) aligns with notarial service fees charged by commercial providers.  (Note that the Australian Embassy in Lima only accepts payments in US dollars by credit card or cash deposit to our bank account.  The exchange rate changes from month to month.  Please contact us for details. )

From 2018 onwards, notarial service fees will increase annually in line with the Consumer Price Index published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

For some services there are free alternatives available to clients, such as witnessing of documents by medical practitioners or police officers.


Emergency consular assistance

Need help now? Find the 24-hour, 7-day a week emergency consular hotlines on this website’s home page.

We assist Australians overseas within limits. Our capacity to assist is influenced by local laws and conditions, international rules governing consular work, and by the cooperation offered by persons and organisations. This does not diminish the obligation of Australian citizens to keep themselves informed on the situation in the country likely to affect their safety or to meet costs incurred in rendering assistance.

Smartraveller just issued a new bulletin on the Zika virus – it’s relevant to all travellers, especially pregnant women, who are going to South and Central America, the Caribbean, or to Samoa in the Pacific. This mosquito-borne disease doesn't have a vaccine. It could be particularly harmful to the unborn babies of pregnant women, though further studies are being done on causal links. Best protection for all is to avoid getting bitten. And taking a really cautious approach (and until more is known), pregnant women should consider postponing travel to any of the 22 countries of concern or speak to a doctor first.


NEW Smartraveller website:


New features include:

  • A Smartraveller app compatible across both Android and IPhone devices and free to download from 1 November 2015 from Google Play and ITunes.
  • The Smartraveller registrations system is now easier to use, with automatic corrections, a more intuitive layout and the ability to add travel companions. Travellers will be able to edit their own profiles by early 2016.
