Step-by-Step Instructions

How to Become a Notary in Alaska

1. Purchase your Alaska notary bond or obtain an employer approval form. The employer approval form replaces the notary bond requirement, if you are applying for a Limited Governmental Commission. 

A notary bond will be the first form required during the online application process.

2. Create a myAlaska account to complete the Alaska Notary Public Application online.

3. Submit your notary application and bond. Once you do so, you will receive an automated email with an oath of office PDF file.

4. Print out the Oath of Office, have the oath administered to you by a notary, and get it notarized. 

5. Return to the email from the Notary Database that contained the oath. Click the link in the email to return to the Notary Database and upload your signed and notarized oath of office.

6. Pay the $40.00 application using the link included in the automated email. The fee is waived for State of Alaska employees applying for limited governmental notary commissions.

Congratulations! You are now an Alaska notary public!

What is a Limited Government Notary Commission?

Limited Governmental Notary commissions are only available to Federal, State and Municipal employees. Notarial activity under a Limited Governmental Notary commission is limited to the official business of your employer.  Applications for Limited Governmental commissions must include a Notary Commission Application form and Employer Approval form.

Limited Governmental commissions are open ended and are active as long as the Notary remains employed by the governmental entity they were working for when they obtained the commission. Limited Governmental notaries will indicate that their notary commission expires “with office” on the completed notarial certificates.
