Hawaii Governor David Ige recently signed into law a bill, Senate Bill 2275 (SB 2275), which revises Hawaii’s notary law to allow remote notarizations.  The changes made by SB 2275 will go into effect on January 1, 2021.

Prior to performing a remote notarial act, SB 2275 requires remote online notaries public to be commissioned by the Hawaii Attorney General (AG) and to notify the AG of the communication technology they plan to use.  Additionally, among other things, remote online notaries public must create an audio-visual recording of the remote notarial act and retain this recording for at least ten years.
