Typically a notary will need to verify documents by sending an email to the educational institution and waiting for a positive confirmation. This can be time consuming and is complex to orchestrate. New services such as myequals.edu.au allow instant checking of qualifications issued since 1990 for many of Australia’s leading higher education bodies. A list of the Universities participating is here: https://www.myequals.edu.au/participants/
