Does Georgia legally recognize online notarization?

Yes, Georgia legally recognizes documents notarized through online services in other states. This is possible because the Full Faith and Credit Clause of the U.S. Constitution allows notarization from one state to be legal in another. The Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act also supports online notarization, recognizing online signatures as a legal form of signing documents.

Though Georgia accepts documents notarized from online services, it doesn’t permit Georgia-commissioned notaries to perform online notarization after suspending the temporary executive order in April 2022. 

The Georgia Code recognizes documents notarized outside of Georgia through GA Code § 9-10-113, 44-2-17, 44-2-21, 44-14-34,& 44-14-62, allowing Georgian residents to utilize online services.
