Certification of documents in Israel and the Palestinian Territories may be provided by any practicing Lawyer/Notary or a Consular Officer at the Australian Embassy in Tel Aviv.   Please contact the Passports/Consular Section at our office directly regarding this matter on (03) 6935027 or by email to [email protected]


All identity documents (ie. birth, adoption, marriage, divorce, death, and discharge from the Army) must have a certified English translation by a Notary (all practicing Notaries in Israel and the Palestinian Territories are acceptable) or an accredited NAATI translator in Australia.  You may select your NAATI translator by the language services they provide, including Hebrew and Arabic.  Some of them may be operating from offices outside Australia, including Israel (See: NAATI). The Australian Embassy in Tel Aviv does not provide translation services.
