Commissioner for Oaths

The Commissioners for Oaths (CFOs) at Supreme Court administer oaths or affirmations only in respect of affidavits or statutory declarations to be used in Supreme Court proceedings. 

For non-Supreme Court related matters, you may wish to contact a CFO listed on the Singapore Academy of Law's CFO directory.

CFO services at the Supreme Court are available by appointment only. Deponents/declarants who wish to affirm, swear or take their affidavits and statutory declarations to be used in Supreme Court proceedings are requested to contact tel: 6557 7459 or email: SUPCOURT_Head_Interpreters@supcourt.gov.sg to make an appointment at least one working day in advance.

The CFOs at the Supreme Court do not administer oaths outside of the Supreme Court premises.

The operating hours of CFOs are as follows: 

Monday-Thursday

9.00am to 5.30pm

Friday

9.00am to 5.00pm

For deponents/declarants who do not understand or speak English, interpretation in the following languages and dialects will be provided:

Chinese Languages

Mandarin, Hokkien, Teochew, Cantonese

Indian Languages

Tamil, Malayalam

Malay Languages

Malay, Javanese, Boyanese

Deponents/declarants who require interpretation in foreign languages or languages and dialects other than those listed above must engage and bring along a qualified interpreter if they wish to have their affidavits and court-related statutory declarations affirmed/sworn/taken before the duty CFOs at the Supreme Court.

For documents to be used in a foreign country, deponents/declarants should have them executed in the presence of a Notary Public instead of a Commissioner for Oaths.
