Application Procedures

New and Renewing Notary Packages
New and Renewing Notary Packages
Renewing Notary Packages do not come with a notary journal

Our New and Renewal Notary Packages DO NOT include your required $1,000 Alaska Notary Bond. The State of Alaska requires purchasing a notary bond, which you will need to send along with your notary application.

Step 1: Order your Alaska Notary Supplies from The Notary's Store but you will need to order your notary bond separately.

Each time you apply for a notary commission you must submit a new $1,000 Alaska notary bond. The notary bond is a specific document that must be completed and submitted as part of the application process. No bond or insurance that your employer is already holding will function as your notary bond. It will always be necessary for you to acquire a new bond and to submit it with each application.

Please visit The Notary's Store you will be entering the Alaska section for your official notary supplies. We offer a New Notary Supply Package and a Renewing Notary Supply Package, which includes your Alaska Notary Seal/Stamp and officially recommended Alaska Notary Journal, and other needed notary supplies at a special reduced price, but you will need to order your required $1,000 Alaska Notary Bond separately. To order, enter all required information and scroll down through the page to locate the notary packages, or you can purchase your notary supplies separately. Follow the onscreen instructions through checkout and your supplies will be sent to you as soon as your order is processed, and will be shipped in approximately 2-3 business days. Once you receive your official bond you may proceed to step 2.

Step 2: Complete the Application Form

Alaska Notary Public Application

Download the application form and complete it according to the included instructions. You will need to have the oath on the application form administered to you by a notary and your signature on it notarized.

Note: Please read the instructions carefully since there may be a delay in processing your application if you do not fill out the form properly.

Step 3: Check your Application Package

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

The items in your application packet should include your original application (completed correctly according to the instructions provided), your original surety bond from The Notary's Store and a $40.00 application fee.

After you receive your official surety bond from The Notary's Store, make a copy of the actual bond for your records.

Your application fee can be in the form of a check or money order made payable to "State of Alaska" or you may choose to pay with Visa or MasterCard. When choosing to pay your application fee with a credit card, you will need to download the proper form here: Credit Card payments complete the information and include it with your application packet.

Step 4: Send your Completed Application Packet to:

Office of Lt. Governor
Notary Public Office
240 Main Street, Room 301
Juneau, AK 99801

Step 5: Receive your Alaska Notary Commission information

If you have not received your commission in the mail within two weeks after mailing your application, please contact the Office of the Lt. Governor.

An Alaska notary public commission is valid for a term of four years. Whenever you renew your commission you will need to order a new $1000 surety bond, from The Notary's Store, per Alaska state requirements.

Note: An Errors and Omissions Insurance Policy does not replace a bond, but will help to repay the bonding company if a claim is ever made. Errors and Omissions is not required by law, but may be purchased as it protects the notary public and pays for any charges the notary might owe for legal fees and costs should the notary be sued.
