In order for the Governor's Notary Section to evaluate your qualification for appointment as a Notary Public for the State of Florida, the following information is required:
Please note that this information is required for new or renewal appointments. Therefore, if the above information were submitted for the current notary appointment, it would also be required again upon renewal.
Submission of the above-required documentation does not guarantee that the Governor will approve the applicant since appointment as a notary is discretionary. Should the Governor deny an applicant the privilege of becoming a notary in the State of Florida, a full refund will be granted.
Complete information is important to ensure that we can process your application in a timely manner. Please note, however, that since these type of applications are referred to the Governor's office on an individual basis, a decision regarding the appointment will be returned in approximately 60-90 days.
