Certifying documents

In most cases, our post office staff can certify documents as being true copies of the original document. Whether we can certify your document depends on the criteria set by individual organisations.

Currently a fee of $4.95 is charged for every document that we certify as being a true copy of the original. From 6 October, we're giving you a 40% discount for the second and subsequent documents. These will now cost $2.95 each.

* These are seasonal rates and are only valid for postage between 1 November and 31 December. Christmas cards and other seasonal greeting cards must be in a sealed envelope and marked 'CARD ONLY'. Normal postage rates apply outside this period.

Frequently asked questions

Support & FAQs

Have international Christmas cards gone up? Click to expand Click to collapse

No. Greeting cards (up to 20g) sent during the months of November and December will receive a discount of 15-20 cents across the three international zones off the published 'up to 50g' price. This means the cost to send a greeting card during this period will be the same as last year.

When will the next price increase for these products occur? Click to expand Click to collapse
