The Virginia Secretary of the Commonwealth’s Notary Public database is provided as a convenience to our customers to research information on notaries public commissioned by our office. Users are advised that the Secretary of the Commonwealth of Virginia or any agency, officer, or employee of the Commonwealth of Virginia does not guarantee the accuracy, reliability, or timeliness of such information, as it is the responsibility of the notary public to inform the Secretary of the Commonwealth of any updated information. While every effort is made to ensure the reliability of this information, portions may be incorrect or not current. Any person or entity that relies on information obtained from this database does so at his own risk. Search results will reflect all current information for commissioned notaries who submitted applications on or after 1/1/2011. A status of “Virginia Notary Public” shows our office has received verification that the notary has been sworn in by the circuit court.
