Statutory declaration / Name variance


A statutory declaration is a written statement declared to be true in the presence of an authorised witness. A statutory declaration form is available on the AMC website here.

You are required to submit a statutory declaration for any of the following reasons:

  • your passport, drivers licence or credit card does not contain a signature
  • the signature on your passport, drivers licence or credit card is not the same as the signature on your application form
  • a document contains a previously used name
  • the name on your passport is different from the name on your qualification(s)

The statutory declaration must be certified by an eligible witness.
