Although some organizations may accept copies that have been certified by someone other than a Notary Public, normally if a Certified True Copy is required, it must be certified by a Notary. This is almost invariably true when the documents are crossing international borders.

You could skết thúc it by mail or courier, if you want. It cannot, however, be sent by email, even if that is how you received it. Emails are far too easily ‘spoofed’, thus must be verified by some outside means.

Then the stamped papers are original documents for the Notary khổng lồ make certified copies from.
