Notarized Signature Authentication
Arguably, the most common form of notarization is the signature authentication. The client meets the Notary in Jerusalem with his/her identification (either a Teduat Zehut or Passport – any passport from any country is fine as long as it is not expired and the name matches the name on the document). The client signs on the document, and the Notary notarizes it. Below are some common examples of signature authentication notarizations:
Authentication of signature notarizations for real estate closing in America
Irrevocable Power of Attorney Notarizations to the bank for Mortgages
Irrevocable Power of Attorney Notarizations to a Building Contractor
General Power of Attorney Notarizations
Authentication of signature for the purposes of one parent travelling with minor.

Individuals and Businesses commonly require the services of a Notary in Jerusalem to certify copies of documents for a variety of purposes. In order to certify, also known as notarizing, a document as a true copy, you must present the original of the document to the Notary in Jerusalem. Notarized true copies often go hand in hand with notarized translations and, in Israel, can usually be accomplished in the same notarization. Below are some common examples of notarizing/certifying copies.

How Much Does a Notary in Jerusalem cost?
The most common question we get asked is “How much does a Notary in Jerusalem cost?”
Fortunately, the answer is not complicated because the fees for notarizing in Israel are fixed by the Ministry of Justice. For example, say you need a Notary in Jerusalem to authenticate your signature. Well, as of 2019, the fee for one signature on one document is 167 NIS + VAT (17% Value Added Tax) for a total of 195 NIS.

What do I need to bring to the Notary in Jerusalem?
The answer to this depends on what type of notarization you are seeking from the Notary in Jerusalem. If it’s a signature authentication, you will need to bring the document, of course, as well as your Identity Booklet (Teudat Zehut) or Passport. A Driver’s Licence is NOT accepted in Israel. If a certified copy, you only need to bring the original document. If a translation, you can simply email us the document to get started on the translation, and when completed, you can then come in with the original document.
