Virtual Notary Public Services (Zoom)

09 April 2020 – John Pearce Notary Public

It is understandable that in the current environment of social distancing and the strong need to safeguard health, that virtual means to witness signatures as a Notary Public should be made available.

  • Unfortunately, there is no Victorian legislation that supports this practice. Ultimately performing virtual Notarial acts may invalidate the documents and disqualify their function in overseas jurisdictions.
  • There is also a range of security concerns such as “zoom-bombing” that further invalidate the practice.
