All commercial documents such as commercial agreements, commercial Power of Attorney, certificate of registration on change of name, certificate of Australia origin, certificate of fumigation, constitution of a company, certificate of export, TGA certificate of GMP, business documents, Certificate of Residency from the Australian Taxation Office, etc, can only be legalised by the Consulate General of Argentina in order to be accepted in Argentina.
A “bound agreement” to avoid double taxation between Australia and the Argentine Republic completed and signed by the beneficial owner of the income or in case of companies by its legal representative. The documents must be signed by an Australian taxation officer for the deputy commission and then authenticated by Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade prior to being submitted to the Consulate General of Argentina for legalization.
Each document must be certified and authenticated (steps: 1, 2 compulsory) prior to being submitted to the Consulate General of Argentina for legalization.
1) Certified, signed and stamped by a Public Notary. Notaries are lawyers who make application to become a public notary. They authenticate, prepare, attest, witness execution of documents, certify original and copy legal documents for use overseas. Whilst most of these functions can be carried out by a Solicitor or Justice of the Peace, they are not recognised overseas and the majority of overseas countries will only recognise a Public Notary.
2) The Public Notary’s signature must be authenticated by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade with the Authentication Stamp. (Please see example). Web site: www.dfat.gov.au
3) Payment of consular fee: All fees are in Australian dollars (AUD) and may be subject to adjustment at any time. Please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
4) Legalization of documents will take five working days plus delivery time in the mail. Please provide a prepaid, self-addressed return envelope, unless the document is picked-up. The consulate shall not be responsible for delays or loss of documents incurred by the post office or carriers, one the documentation was delivered or sent by this Consulate.
