Online Notary Public - (this allows for an online notary public to notarize a document remotely, without the principal(s) being in the online notary public's physical presence)

An Executive Order was signed by the Governor allowing for the early implementation of the Online Notary Public Act.  Emergency regulations related to the Act were approved (Nebraska Administrative Code Title 433, Chapter 9) and are in effect through June 30, 2020.  Beginning July 1, 2020 the emergency rules are no longer in effect and the new codified rules under Nebraska Administrative Code Title 433, Chapter 8 take effect.  Please see General Information below for additional details.

General Information

Online Notary Statutes

Rules and Regulations - Title 433, Chapter 8 (effective July 1, 2020)

Rules and Regulations - Title 433, Chapter 9
These regulations were only available while in effect through June 30, 2020, at which time the Online Notary Public Act became operative by its own terms and the emergency regulations were replaced with codified regulations.  The emergency regulations lift some of the requirements through the emergency period to allow for expedited processing, such as the requirement for the online notary public applicant and solution provider to take the course of instruction prior to being approved; but still requires the online notary public and solution provider to take the course within 30 days of being notified by the Secretary of State that the course is available. The Secretary of State is also allowing for applications and tests to be submitted without being notarized during this emergency period.  During the emergency period the solution provider only has to give a demonstration of their technology if requested by the Secretary of State and can use the online notary public's registration certificate for verification of their authorization to perform online notarial acts.

 

Online Notary Registration

To become an online notary public, please submit a completed Online Notary Registration Form (available in the below links) along with the required $50 fee to the Secretary of State's Office.  You must already be a Nebraska notary public to become an online notary public.  The Online Notary Registration Form requires you identify an online notary solution provider approved by the Secretary of State (please see approved solution providers identified below on this page).  Once your registration form is approved, you will be notified to register for the required course (the course will be conducted via webinar).  Once you've taken the course you will receive a test by email.  Once you've passed the test you will receive your online notary commission certificate via email.  After you receive your online notary commission certificate you will need to provide it to your approved solution provider.  For questions please email sos.enotary@nebraska.gov.
