Procedure And Requirements For Obtaining NBA Lawyers’ Stamp, Insurance Policy, Prepaid Cards, Lawyers Verification Exercise – Plus Downloadable Forms

Compliments of the season. Wishing us all a more fruitful year.

Hope we all have got NBA stamps. Enforcement has commenced in courts and government agencies. Non adherence will surely be a preliminary objection.  Supreme Court holds that documents without NBA stamps are voidable albeit not void. I urge you to endeavour to apply and obtain your own NBA seal. Presently, stamps issued since 2015 expired on 31 March, 2016 birthing the need for new stamps.
