Are Online Notary Services legal?

Yes! Electronic notarization is legal and accepted throughout the country in all 50 states. Notaries first began notarizing remotely in the US in 2011, when Virginia authorized notaries to have sessions through audio-video technology. In the years since, more and more states have explicitly allowed for their notaries to perform electronic notarization. Long-standing, well-established laws have recognized the legitimacy of out-of-state notarizations.


It is important to note that certain states and agencies may have additional requirements regarding electronic and out-of-state notarizations. For example, some documents may only be approved with wet signatures, rather than electronic ones. To understand the details of your specific document, please check with the agency you are filing with to see if electronic notarization is appropriate for you.
