How to become an online notary in New Mexico?

At Online Notary Center, we provide all the resources you need to become a remote online notary in New Mexico. Connect with new signers or bring your own clients! You can start doing notarizations and making money straight from home.

You can find Online Notary Center listed on the New Mexico's Secretary of State’s website list of authorized vendors here.

Here’s what you need to do to start.

Hold a Notarial Commission

To do online notarizations, you’ll need a traditional notarial commission from your state first. If you don’t have one already, check your Secretary of State website for instructions on getting started. You’ll need to upload a copy of this commission to your account on our platform

Obtain E&O Insurance

Errors and Omissions (E&O) Insurance protects you financially if you are sued for unintentional mistakes or if a false claim is filed against you. You’ll need to upload a copy of your policy for at least $25,000 to your account.

Purchase a Digital Certificate from IdenTrust

A digital certificate, also known as a digital signature, is used to seal the documents you’ve notarized. This digital certificate attaches to the document and ensures the document is tamper-evident (i.e. any subsequent changes to the document become apparent). At Online Notary Center, we partner with IdenTrust for digital certificates. For instructions on getting your certificate, follow this link here.

We do not accept digital certificates from other vendors.

Purchase an Online Notary Center Notary Plan

Choose between our Notary Basic Plan and our Notary Professional Plan. We’ll provide your journal, seal, and signature, along with all the technology and tools needed to start performing notarizations. See our Pricing for details on each of our plans.

Complete the Education Course and Exam

There is a Remote Online Notary Education course you must complete. After you’ve taken the course and passed the state-required exam, you can apply to do RON.

Submit a RON Request to the SOS

You’ll need to obtain authorization with the Secretary of State to officially start notarizing online. Follow this link to access the Remote Online Notary Application Form. Mail the completed application, the Certificate of Completion for the RON Education course, and the $75 filing fee to the New Mexico Secretary of State at 325 Don Gaspar, Suite 300, Santa Fe, NM 87501.

If you’re asked for a description of the technology used by our platform, you can use the information below:

Electronic Notary Technology:

At Online Notary Center, every remote online notary receives a password-protected electronic journal upon joining. Journal entries are stored for 10 years and can only be accessed through the notary’s account. Entries may also be exported for the notary’s own record. Additionally, Online Notary Center provides uninterrupted, continuous audio-video communication between an electronic notary and a principal. All audio-video communication is recorded and stored for 10 years.

For further details on rules and fees, please check the New Mexico Secretary of State website.

Pick Pricing Plan

With our different plans, you get to choose what’s best for you, your workflow, and your business.


How much does it cost to become a New Mexico online notary?

With Online Notary Center, you can start performing notarizations for $14.95 / month with our Notary Basic Plan, or $19.95 / month with our Notary Professional Plan. There is also a $75 filing fee for the remote online notary application form. Other costs may vary. For example, you may need to account for the cost of supplies, such as your computer, webcam, and internet access.

See our Pricing for further details on each of our plans.

What does the online notarization process look like?

The notarization process is completed 100% online through our website’s virtual notary rooms.

With a notary subscription, you’re able to schedule meetings with your clients and generate invitation links for the session. After clicking their links, signers verify their identities using knowledge-based authentication. Then the signer and notary are connected into a virtual room, where they can see the document on the screen and complete the notarization together.

How long am I authorized to be a New Mexico remote online notary?

Your electronic commission lasts as long as your traditional notary commission does. You will also need to consider the length of your IdenTrust digital certificate, and the length of your subscription with our platform.

What does becoming an online notary do for my business?

By becoming an online notary, you’re helping your business grow beyond your state! You’re no longer limited to just signers in New Mexico. You can notarize for signers across the US and even outside of the country, as long as you are physically in your state during the notarization.
