How much does it cost to visit a Justice of the Peace?
Justice of the Peace Services are free. JP's are not paid and are volunteers.
Can I bring someone else's passport to be certified?
Yes, if it is only for a certified copy. If it is required to prove the person's identity then they must present their documents in person.
Do I have to make an appointment?
Please phone individual JPs to make an appointment. There is no appointment required for Service Desks.
Can I have my document certified via video link?
Please discuss this with the Justice of the Peace.
Can a Justice of the Peace sign my document?
Please check that with the agency RECEIVING the document. If it is an overseas document, a New Zealand Justice of the Peace may not be the best person to witness it.
