Notaries Public

IMPORTANT: The Department is proposing to adopt amendments to Chapter 5-11, Hawaii Administrative Rules, relating to Notaries Public.  The proposed rule amendments are currently available for review online at https://ag.hawaii.gov/notaries-public/hawaii-administrative-rules/.


Please be informed that Act 54, Session Laws of Hawaii 2020 has become effective as of January 1, 2021.  Notaries public should read and educate themselves as to the most recent updates to the Notaries Public statute. Revisions to the  administrative rules will be forthcoming.


Pursuant to Governor Ige’s mandate to practice social distancing, all “in person” Notary Office services have been suspended until further notice.  Due to the reduction of on-site resources, the Notary Office will respond to your inquiries as soon as possible.  Please email at [email protected] if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

The Notary Office will continue to process applications, renewals and other matters submitted through the Online Notary Public website at: notary.ehawaii.gov or by email at:  [email protected]
