To become an Arizona notary
you must be able to answer "yes" to all of the following questions:
If you have answered "yes" to all of the above, just follow the five simple steps listed below to start the application process.
Order your four-year, $5,000 Arizona notary bond from the American Association of Notaries.
During the application process on the Arizona Secretary of State's website, you will be asked to enter the notary bond number, the bonding company name, and the notary bond issue date and effective date. Your notary commission will be issued by the State with an effective date as stated on the notary bond. For example, if you choose a bond with an effective date of 7/1/2018, your notary commission will be issued with an effective date of 7/1/2018 and expires 4-years from the effective date.
Your application will be rejected if the state receives your application and the bond 30-days after the bond effective date. So, it is important to choose a “Bond Effective Date” in the future (at least 5-10 days from today’s date) that you are comfortable with that is within the 30-days period that you expect to deliver your application to the State.
The name you choose on the bond when you click on the “Add to Cart" button should be the same name you use when applying online for a notary public commission. The state will reject your application if the name on the bond and the online application are different (e.g.: if you choose “Notary Q. Public” on your notary bond; you cannot have “N. Q. Public” or “Notary Public” on your application).
Please click on the "Add to Cart" button below to purchase the bond. To speed up the Arizona notary application commissioning process, we will email you the Arizona notary bond with complete instructions on how to complete the application process the same day if you place your order before 12:00 noon C.T.

The Arizona Secretary of State will only accept notary applications completed and printed via their website. To start the Arizona notary application process go to https://apps.azsos.gov/apps/notary/application/default.aspx,click on the "Next" button, and select the option "Yes, I do have a $5,000 bond.” The application wizard will guide you step-by-step in completing your notary application.
