Notarizing Through Videoconferencing

On March 26, 2020, Alabama Governor Kay Ivey issued a supplemental proclamation as a result of COVID-19 that allows Alabama notaries who are licensed attorneys or operating under supervision of licensed attorneys to notarize signatures through videoconferencing and confirm signatures of witnesses who participate virtually through videoconferencing as though they were physically present at the signing.

A person who witnesses a document through videoconference technology may be considered an “in person” witness, so long as the notary confirms the presence and identity of such witnesses at the time of signing by the same identifications required under current law.  The Governor’s proclamation remains in effect for the duration of the COVID-19 public health emergency unless rescinded or extended.
