A “notary public” is typically an official who has been granted by the government to validate signatures or documents, and eyewitness affirmations or records of persons under pledge.
In general, a notary public Thailand has no right to act when not in the jurisdiction of the administration where the notary is authorized. Notarization of documents is often needed when it is essential to confirm the authenticity of the document or to ascertain that the person signing the record is whom they say there are.
The Hague Convention Abolished the Requirements of Legalization for Foreign Public Acts, the Apostil Convention, or the Apostil Treaty, is an international agreement outlined by the Hague Conference, but Thailand takes not part on it.
Should you need notary services in Thailand, our Pattaya “notarial service attorney” Thailand, may be able to serve your needs. In other situations, you may need the help of an embassy or the Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Alternatively, you may need certification from some combination of the above authorities.
The Embassy of the nation to which the document shall be presented.

Even though Thailand does not license notaries public, some Thai lawyers as our Pattaya law firm The Social Lawyers, are licensed to function as notarial services attorneys. The Lawyers Council of Thailand coordinates the practice of notarial services in Thailand. A Thai lawyer is obliged to pass a professional preparation on notarial services before he or she can be registered as a notarial services attorney in Thailand.
If legally authorized to act, a notarial services attorney can:
1. Confirm the authenticity of signatures in a document;
2. Verify the identity of parties to an agreement;
3. Conduct oaths and affirmations;
4. Attest to and endorse certain forms of documents;
5. Witness the signature of a document.
Should you require some other kind of authentication, certification or legalization you might need to refer to one of the following authorities: your Embassy, the Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs, or the Embassy of the nation to which the document has to be presented. In some instances, you may need to present a document to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs only after a notarial service in Thailand attorney has verified it.

Legalizations issued by The Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs
As we said, Thailand is not part of the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement for Legalization for Foreign Public Documents; therefore if you require to validate or certify a document that arose outside Thailand or a certificate from Thailand that shall be accepted in another nation, you could be obliged to have it authorized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for international use.
