New York Remote Notarization Executive Order

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo issued an executive order allowing notarizations using audio-video technology in place of physical appearance under certain conditions. This option allows New York Notaries and signers to practice the necessary “social distancing” required to reduce risk of contracting COVID-19. The order is in effect through April 18, 2020.

To use audiovisual technology to communicate during the notarization, the Notary and signer must comply with the following requirements:

  • The person seeking the Notary's services, if not personally known to the Notary, must present valid photo ID to the Notary during the video conference. The signer may not present ID prior to or after the notarization.

  • The video conference must allow for direct interaction between the person and the Notary (e.g. no pre-recorded videos of the person signing).

  • The person must affirmatively represent that he or she is physically located in the State of New York.

  • The person must transmit by fax or electronic means a legible copy of the signed document directly to the Notary on the same date it was signed. 

  • The Notary may notarize the transmitted copy of the document and transmit the same back to the person.

  • The Notary may repeat the notarization of the original signed document as of the date of execution provided the Notary receives such original signed document together with the electronically notarized copy within thirty days after the date of execution.
