Notaries Public

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 the State is allowing the current emergency proclamation to expire on March 25. After March 25:

  • The state’s indoor mask requirement will end. However, the CDC and Dept. of Health continue to recommend mask use while indoors by certain populations, and some departments may be consulting or negotiating with the appropriate public-sector union on this issue.
  • Current employees will no longer be required to provide vaccination status or negative COVID-19 test results.
  • Visitors and contractors to state facilities will no longer be required to show vaccination status or a negative COVID-19 test result.
  • And the Safe Travels Hawaiʻi program will also come to an end.

While the state’s emergency proclamation is ending, We want to be very clear: The pandemic is not over yet. We’ve seen how variants can cause COVID cases and hospitalizations to spike, and that while there may not be an emergency proclamation in place going forward, you should still take measures to protect yourself and your loved ones:

  • Wear your mask if you feel the need to wear one, especially if you are unvaccinated, elderly, have underlying health conditions, or care for people at high risk of contracting severe COVID. Masks are also recommended if you are in a crowded setting.
  • Stay up to date on the COVID vaccine, including a booster if you are eligible.
  • And as always, stay home if you’re sick, and get tested if you’ve had contact with a COVID-positive individual or have COVID-like symptoms.

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: or by email at:  [email protected].
