United States Embassies and/or Consulates do not provide remote or electronic notarial services. 

Electronic notarization is currently authorized in many states.  Many states allow electronic and remote notarization over videoconference.  Refer to your specific State Notary Handbook for more information. Please verify with the intended recipient of your documents that this form of notarization is acceptable before engaging an online notary.

The U.S. Embassy and Consulates will accept electronic legalization of Form DS-3053 (Declaration of Consent for Issuance of a Passport to a Child Under 16 Years of Age), provided that the legalization was completed in accordance with the policies of the state which commissioned the notary public. More information regarding remote notarization and authentication services is available on the Department of State’s website.
