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

- THB 900 for providing a consular letter, taking a statutory declaration, affidavit, or witnessing signature
- THB 1,300 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 cash only. There is no credit or debit card facilities available.]
Passport Fees to increase from 1 March 2019
Fees for New Zealand passports and Emergency Travel Documents will increase from 1 March 2019.
The Department of Internal Affairs reviews the fees every three years, and the increase from 1 March follows the first review of passport and travel document fees since the change of adult passport validity period from five to ten years in 2015.
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.
