The process for a New Arizona Notary & a Renewing Arizona Notary is exactly the same. Renewing Notaries may
not need to order a new Notary Journal if there are spaces left in the Journal currently being used.
You must meet the following requirements:
- Must be at least 18 years of age
- Must be a citizen or a legal permanent resident of the U.S.
- Must NOT have a conviction for a felony UNLESS your civil rights have been restored, or a conviction of a lesser offense involving moral turpitude or of a nature that is incompatible with the duties of a notary public.
- Must be an Arizona Resident for income tax purposes
- If you have had a professional license revoked or suspended for misconduct or dishonesty or any cause that substantially relates to the duties or responsibilities of a notary public, or if you have had your notary commission revoked or suspended, the Secretary of State may refuse to grant you a commission.
- File online by choosing one of the Packages or Products from the Packages & Supplies page or;
