How to notarize identification documents such as passports for use in China?

First, make a photocopy of your passport or ID. In order to be used in China, the Chinese Consulate/Embassy prefers to have a declaration statement from the passport holder and acknowledgement statement from the notary public. The statement should be on a separate piece of paper. The declaration from the passport holder should state the passport photocopy is a true and unaltered copy. The notary’s acknowledgement statement should state something like “”Signed and sworn (or affirm) to before me this___ day of _______, 20__.”. Do not complete, sign or date the document until you are in front of a notary public. You will bring the original passport, photocopy, statement and a valid ID (passport or driver’s license) to a local notary public. The notary will then notarize your signature.

*Certain states require a County Clerk to certify the notary’s signature. Please check with your state’s requirements before proceeding to next steps.

Sample of statement:
