In most states, becoming a notary public involves meeting a number of requirements. Generally, you must be 18 years of age, not have a serious criminal history, and successfully complete an application process. In some states, the notary application process will require notary education (ranging from a simple online course to a notary class and competency exam) and a background check, as well as the purchase of a surety bond. A more thorough explanation for your state is described below.

Become an Alaska notary public with Notary Rotary

Qualifications:

Applicants must be 18 years of age and residents of Alaska who are residing legally in the United States. Applicants may not within 10 years before the commission takes effect have been convicted of a felony or incarcerated for a felony conviction.
If you have ever had a Notary commission revoked or have been disciplined for Notarial misconduct in Alaska or any other jurisdiction please contact the office to discuss before submitting your application. For additional information, you may access the Alaska Secretary of State Notary Public web site.

Term of Appointment:

Alaska notaries public are appointed for a commission term of four (4) years.

Step 1: Order your Alaska notary bond from Notary Rotary.

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 Alaska Notary Supplies store for your official surety bond and other notary supplies. To order, enter the required information, scroll down through the page to locate and select your desired products, and follow the instructions through checkout. Once you have your official bond you may proceed with step 2.

Step 2: Complete the Application Form.

Alaska Notary Public Application 

Please 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.

Please 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 Notary Rotary, and a $40.00 application fee.

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 Commission or Follow up.

Once you receive your commission information from the Office of the Lt. Governor, return to the Notary Rotary Store to order your official Alaska notary seal and other supplies following the same procedure you used when ordering your bond.

If you have not received your commission in the mail within two weeks after mailing it 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 Notary Rotary, Inc., per Alaska state requirements.
