The internet and 21st Century technology have made it easier than ever to verify a person’s identity and handle their basic notarization needs without an excessive amount of travel.
For documents that don’t require in-person notarization, Nebraska Notary offers online and electronic notarizing services.
This allows for things like the verification of identity and the observation of the signing process over the internet. Rather than having to be physically present in the same room as the notary public. Remote online notarization is sometimes known by other names such as “Webcam Notarization, or “Virtual Notarization.”
It’s important to note that there is a difference between electronic notarization and remote notarization.
Electronic notarization requires an electronic record such as a PDF or word document. That document is appears on a computer in front of the notary who is in-person.
