New Hampshire issues emergency order authorizing secure remote online notarization

State Issues Covid-19 New Hampshire Notary Fintech

State Issues

On March 23, the New Hampshire governor issued an emergency order temporarily authorizing secure remote online notarization, with certain specified conditions. If state law requires an individual to appear personally before or be in the physical presence of a notarial officer at the time of a notarization, this requirement is satisfied if the individual and the notarial officer can communicate simultaneously by sight and sound through an electronic device or process at the time of the notarization. The order provides additional guidance on the signature, mailing, official date and time, and validity and recognition of the notarization.
