Our services include, but are not limited to, witnessing signatures, certifying true copies of original documents, and statutory declarations.

- THB 1,700 for providing a consular letter, taking a statutory declaration, affidavit, or witnessing signature
- THB 2,500 for verifying an authentication signature on a NZ document (this requires the document to have already been authenticated by NZ authorities)
[Note: fees rendered for this service are payable by bank transfer only. There is no credit or debit card facilities available.]
Passport Fees to increase from 25 May 2022
Fees for New Zealand passports and Emergency Travel Documents will increase from 25 May 2022.
The Department of Internal Affairs reviews the fees every three years. The new fee structure will ensure New Zealand continues to deliver a quality passport that’s internationally recognised and trusted, and is a secure identity document for all New Zealanders.
