Re: Australian witness to sign the application for the partner registration

And the registration office in Queensland said that it must be an Australian JP so i can‘t just pick someone here in my city
Australia is a contractiong party of the Hague Apostille Convention. A local notary plus an apostille from the canton where the notary is located should in theory be more than enough. But on the other hand there seems tobe a few more formalities and duties for the notary than just to authenticate the signatures and identity of the two partners.

I see two hurdles: First, at least one partner must be a Queensland Resident. Second, the civil partnership notary must be registered in Queensland according its Civil Partnership Act 2011. https://www.legislation.qld.gov.au/v...2/act-2011-046

In whole Queensland there are just three active civil partnership notaries.
