Australian travellers should take certain precautions before they venture overseas.
Many countries have a very high crime rate, with majority of crime being minor or opportunistic such as pickpockets or bag snatching.
Here are some of the benefits of using the services of a Public Notary before you leave:
Your passport is a valuable document that is attractive to criminals who may try to use your identity to commit crimes. If you lose your passport, credit cards, driver’s license, health-insurance information or other important travel documents while you are away, it will be faster & easier to replace the originals if you have notarised certified copies of the originals. With a copy of your passport information and number, for example, you can go to the nearest consulate or embassy and have your passport reissued more quickly than if the number had to be tracked down and you have to prove who you really are.
