This step-by-step guide walks you through the process of becoming a notary in Nebraska.
Along with the bond, our notary package includes a detailed copy of application instructions that guide you through this process. Below is a basic overview of the process to help you prepare.
In order to become a Notary in Nebraska, you must meet the following requirements:
All Nebraska notaries require a $15,000 notary bond. The state does not provide these bonds, but one is included with the notary package available on Notaries.com. Be sure to pick a name for your surety bond that you want to appear on your official seal of office.
After purchase, your notary bond will print along with detailed application instructions.
When you purchase our notary package, we fill out a copy of the state application with the information you provided then email it to you.
You can then print the pre-filled application, sign it (make sure your signature on the application is the exact same as the name used on your notary bond), then mail it in with the $30 application fee.
Every notary applicant must take an oath of office in the presence of a Nebraska notary in good standing. The oath is part of the notary application form.
Before taking the oath of office, you must also present satisfactory evidence of your identity (such as a state-issued photo ID or US passport).
Before submitting, make sure your application includes the following:
Once ready, submit your completed notary application packet directly to:
Nebraska Secretary of State
Business Services Division
P.O. Box 95104
Lincoln, Nebraska 68509
After receiving your application, Nebraska will send you a notary test via email or physical mail. Once you complete the test, you must mail it back to the Secretary of State Office (see address above).
When you pass the test, you receive your commission certificate! If you do not pass the test, the state will provide you with next steps.
Once you receive your official commission certificate, you can start the process of acquiring your official notary stamp from us.
The stamp included with your notary package purchase comes with:
*NOTE: The state requires that we receive a copy of your Notary Commission Certificate before we can manufacture your stamp. In order to receive your stamp from us, remember to forward an email or scanned copy of your certificate to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will then manufacture your notary stamp that will meet or exceed state specifications and promptly ship it to you.
The state of Nebraska also highly recommends that all notaries keep a journal of their work. That’s why we include a notary record keeping journal in our complete notary package.
