Notaries public in Minnesota can now apply to serve their communities as commissioned online notaries. This commission will allow you to complete electronic notarizations completely online through a secure, two-way video call.
Current Minnesota notaries can apply to become an online notary public through the Secretary of State’s Office. You can find the application and its requirements here.
As of April 15, 2020, applicants must complete the Remote Online Notarization Authorization form and physically mail it to the Secretary of State’s Office. Upon acceptance, you will receive an email notification that you are authorized to perform online notarizations.
You will then need to select an online notarization solution provider – like Notarize.
Recently, Notarize announced that it opened the Notarize platform to Minnesota notaries if they are employed by a business using Notarize.
All notaries that use the Notarize platform must meet similar minimum compliance standards. Therefore, all notaries must follow the same application process to access our platform.
