Temporary changes to execution and witnessing
Temporary changes have been made to the law, through the Coronavirus Economic Response Package (Modifications—Statutory Declarations and Notices of Intention to Marry) Determination 2021. These changes allow Commonwealth statutory declarations to be completed and witnessed electronically. This means you can use an electronic signature to make a Commonwealth statutory declaration. You can also get it witnessed using audio visual technology. These changes are in place until 31 December 2023. Visit How to complete a statutory declaration to find out more.
