How to Become an Online Notary in Virginia

Notaries public in Virginia 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.

How to Obtain Your Online Notarial Commission

Current Virginia notaries can apply to become an online notary public through the Secretary of the Commonwealth’s Office. You can find the application and its requirements here. If you have any questions, please reach out to notary@governor.virginia.gov.

As of May 15, 2020, notaries must submit a request to the Secretary of the Commonwealth's Office to conduct remote notarizations. As part of this request, you will need to select an online notarization solution provider – like Notarize.

Notarizing Documents on the Notarize Platform

Recently, Notarize announced that it opened the Notarize platform to Virginia notaries in two ways: as an independent contracted notary working for Notarize or for businesses with employee notaries.

All notaries that use the Notarize platform must meet similar minimum compliance standards. Therefore, whether you are an independent contractor notary or a notary employed by a business using Notarize, you will follow the same application process to access our platform.
