Certificate of True Copy
A true copy is when you have an original document and you want a certified copy of the original.
Bring the originals and the photocopies. The Notary must see the original.
To be legally valid - if you are photocopying multiple documents onto a single page (for example a passport and a driver's license), each photocopied image on the page must be separately sealed and certified by the Notary - resulting in a fee for each sealed image.
When you photocopy the front and back of a document they are counted as just one certified copy, even if they are on separate pages.
You can bring another person's original documents; the documents don't have to belong to you.
Foreign Language Documents - The original documents can be in any language.
Black/White or Color? Usually the institution you're sending them to will let you know if they require color copies; otherwise black/white copies are usually sufficient.
Multi-Page Documents - Unless your institution requires otherwise, a multi-page document only requires one seal. The Notary will indicate the number of pages in the document near his signature, and will signature stamp each page.
