What Is a Mobile Notary or Traveling Notary?

Unlike an in-office or online notary, a Mobile Notary or Traveling Notary is a notary public who travels to meet clients in-person.

Usually, you must make an appointment and wait to meet a mobile notary at a specified time and location. Fees are typically much higher as you must pay for their travel time and expenses.

These notaries are typically used as part of the mortgage closing process where multiple parties' signatures need to be collected. They are particularly useful with mortgage closings conducted across state lines. Other areas where it is typical to see a mobile or traveling notary used is in trusts, POAs and healthcare documents.

As an alternative, more convenient solution, Notarize is a legal notary public service offered entirely online. You can connect with a notary over live video call no matter where you're located. The service is online 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
