  • What does a 'Certified Copy' mean?

    A certified copy is a photocopy of an original document that has been sighted, stamped, dated and signed by a certifying agent as a true copy of the original. The accepted people who can do this include an Australian consular official, High Commission or Trade official; a person of authority at the issuing institution (for example, the registrar); Justice of the Peace; or public notary.
