Personal appearance is still required.
If you are a notary that offers services at a business location that is authorized to maintain in-person operations, the customer must be in your physical presence.
If you are an approved remote online notary, personal appearance is accomplished when you meet with the customer remotely using approved audio-visual technology.
If you want to do remote notarizations, you need to:
- Become an e-Notary
- Use state-approved RON technology for transactions
- Indicate that the notarial act was performed by means of communication technology.
