The Australian Consulate-General, Mumbai can provide certified copies of certain original documents. Certification involves taking a photocopy of the original document and certifying it.
The Australian Consulate-General uses a stamp in which the following wording appears on our certified copies, “This is a true copy of the document presented to me", followed by the certifying officer’s stamp with their name, title and the Consulate seal. We are unable to alter these wordings, should you require alternate wordings please approach an alternative provider.
Electronic document can be certified as a true copy. If the original document is issued electronically, you should be able to produce the source email (email sent by the issuing authority) to the Officer and forward it to the Australian Consulate-General’s email inbox firstname.lastname@example.org.
Authorising someone to certify your documents
Please note you should be present for the Consulate to certify your documents. If you are unable to attend the Consulate in person, you must write an authorisation letter to authorise another person to have the documents certified on your behalf. Please provide a document to match your signature on the authorisation letter. The authorised person must also carry some form of identification.
