Please provide the following instructions to your certifier or notary:

 

1. The original document must be clearly photocopied and facial features must be clearly visible.

2. Please write/stamp the following on the copy: “I certify that this is a true and correct copy of an original document in the name of [name of applicant]”.

3. If the document contains a photograph, please write/stamp the following on the copy: “I certify that this is a true and correct copy of an original document in the name of [name of applicant] and a true likeness”.

4. Sign your name below the above statement and date the certification. Print your name, position, and any identification number below your signature or stamp each certified copy with your business stamp (if applicable).
