A jurat is a notary’s certification that he or she administered an oath or affirmation to the signer, whose signature was made in the notary’s presence. The purpose of a Jurat is for a signer to swear to or affirm the truthfulness of a document’s contents. In order for a Jurat to be correctly executed, the signer must sign the documents in front of the notary. Documents that typically require oaths or affirmations are applications, affidavits, or any sworn statement in which the signer sets for the certain facts in writing.
An acknowledgement is a declaration that;
- the signer understands the contents of the document,
- has signed the document,
- and consents to the terms and conditions stated in the document.
The signer may either sign the document prior to appearing before a notary, or in the notary’s presence. In either instance, the signer must acknowledge signing the document for its intended purpose.
Acknowledgements are typically required for contracts, power of attorney, or any type of document where a person has to agree to some particular terms of the document.

So, further certification might be needed from Ministry of Foreign Affairs or an embassy depending on case to case basis.
