Apostilles, Authentications, and Certificates of No Impediment to Marriage

Within Australia

Staff at Australian Passport Offices in capital cities are authorized to provide:

– Issuing Certificates of No Impediment to Marriage (CNI), including witnessing the signature on the application form.
– Legalization of documents through Apostilles and Authentications.


Legalization of Documents (Authentications and Apostilles)

Foreign governments may require proof that the signatures of Australian officials on documents are genuine before accepting them. The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), through the Australian Passport Office in your capital city, certifies that a signature, stamp, or seal on an official Australian public document is genuine by verifying it against a specimen held on file. They then print and attach a certificate in the form of an “authentication” or an “apostille” stating certain facts. This certificate is signed by DFAT staff and sealed with both a wet and a dry seal. For more information regarding document requirements, fees and charges, locations, and the form to lodge documents, refer to Smartraveller.


Certificates of No Impediment to Marriage

DFAT cannot provide advice regarding the specific requirements of other countries for a marriage to be legal. For details on marriage requirements, you should contact the Embassy, High Commission, or Consulate of the country where you wish to marry for their advice. Refer to Smartraveller for further information regarding Certificates of No Impediment to Marriage, including the application form.



The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade issues passports, serving as evidence of identity and citizenship for Australians traveling internationally.
