How to Become an Alaska Notary


How to Become a Notary Public in Alaska

  1. Alaska Notary CourseCOMPLETE NOTARY TRAINING

    Although not required, we highly recommend you know and understand the notary laws in the state of Alaska. Our training course goes above and beyond the laws. We teach you how to do your job and protect you and your employer from liability.

  2. PREPARE/PURCHASE/ACQUIRE YOUR NOTARY BOND

    Each time you apply for a notary commission you must submit a new $1,000 notary bond.If you or your employer prefer not to purchase a commercial bond, the bonding requirement can also be met using an individual Surety via our blank notary bond form. Since the notary bond is mandatory for all regular notary commissions, please do not submit your application until you have the required notary bond in hand. The bond itself is mandatory and no other documentation related to the purchase of a bond is acceptable.  Similarly, there are no substitutes for this bond.  There is no other type of insurance or bond that you or your employer already have that will be accepted in lieu of the required $1,000 Alaska notary bond. If you purchase a commercial notary bond, submit the bond and any supporting documentation that is provided to you by your insurance/bonding company as part of your commission application.  There is no need to submit the state's blank notary bond form in addition to a commercial notary bond.  The blank form is only intended to be used by applicants who are supplying their own third party individual Surety.  The Surety must always be a third party (applicants may not function as their own Surety.)

  3. Notary ApplicationWHEN YOU HAVE YOUR NOTARY BOND IN HAND, COMPLETE THE APPLICATION FORM (OR APPLY ONLINE)

    Please fill out the application form according to the included instructions and submit it along with your notary bond and fee. You need to have the oath on the application form administered to you by a notary and your signature on it notarized, and can ignore any oath on your notary bond. Please read the instructions carefully since there may be a delay in processing your application if you do not fill out the form properly.

  4. CHECK YOUR APPLICATION PACKET

    Please make sure that your application form and bond have been properly completed according to the instructions. Missing and/or incomplete forms and fees or sending photocopies of documents instead of originals will delay the processing of your application.

  5. SEND YOUR COMPLETED NOTARY BOND, APPLICATION FORM AND YOUR $40.00 APPLICATION FEE (MAKE CHECKS PAYABLE TO "STATE OF ALASKA") OR (APPLY ONLINE):

    Office of the Lieutenant Governor

    Notary Public Office

  6. FOLLOW UP

    It may take up to a month to process your commission application.  Please contact the office if you have not received your commission in the mail within four weeks after mailing it.

  7. IF YOU HAVE FURTHER QUESTIONS OR NEED ASSISTANCE

    Please call or email with any additional questions, for hard copies of the required forms, or if you need assistance with your application. Copies of the forms you need to use for your application can be found on this site by clicking on this link.
