Commissioner for Oaths

With effect from 1 February 2018, the Commissioner for Oaths (CFO) services at the Supreme Court will only be available for Supreme Court-related matters. Members of the public who require CFO services for non-Supreme Court related matters can approach private law firms providing these services. All CFOs charge a standard rate as prescribed under Part II of the Schedule in the Commissioners for Oath Rules.

Deponents/declarants who wish to affirm, swear or take their affidavits and statutory declarations to be used in Supreme Court proceedings may proceed to the Legal Registry at Level 2 of the Supreme Court Building for CFO services during the following operating hours:

Monday-Thursday

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.
