Hong Kong Notaries Public belong to one of the 3 branches of the legal profession in Hong Kong. They witness, certify and authenticate documents going abroad to facilitate business globalization or to fulfil personal needs.
Because of globalization of businesses, the number of company documents for overseas use is increasing rapidly.
In Hong Kong, notarial instruments now have evidentiary value by virtue of the legislation of the Statute Law (Miscellaneous Provisions) Ordinance 2014.
