I've been asked to send you documents - who can certify them?
If you've been asked to send us documents (e.g. to prove your identity), which need to be certified, they can be certified by the following people (as long as they are not family members). Generally the certifier will need to be currently in the listed occupation, but we'll accept some occupations if they've retired. These are marked by asterisks.
The certifier must:
- Write ‘Certified by me’ on the document
- Sign and date the document
- Print their name under the signature
- Add their occupation, address and/or telephone number
