As we are operating on limited staffing, please check our website again for updates. We are hopeful to offer limited walk in service in by September 2021.
We have made several adjustment to our operations to mitigate the chances of exposure to our team members and our customers. In addition to a focus on hygine and social distancing. Mobile notary service remains available 24/7.
We recommend that you make all appointment requests at least 24 hours in advance.
The NYS Department of State office in New York City is closed. This office normally is able to issue Apostille and Authentication/Legalization Certifcates for documents to be used internationally on a same or next day basis.The NYS Department of State office in Albany does not accepts documents for same day processing. As a result, the processing time is much longer than normal. The current processing time estimate is five weeks for Apostille. Processing time has been increasing due to increasing demand for Apostille Certicates. Non-Apostille certificates that needs to be submitted to a Consulate or Embassy will take even long, in some case, several months if they require an authentication from the US Department of State.
Many foreign UN Missions and Consulates have scaled back operations. This has lead to a delays and in some cases suspension of Consular document Authentication and Legalization services for many countries. For those countries that do not accept Apostille Certificates, additional cost and processing time will be needed to obtain Consular document Authentication and Legalization services from Embassies in Washington, DC.
Our notary is able to meet you anywhere in these states, including at bus, train, ferry and PATH stations as well as at towns and rest stops just over the state line. Please be advised that the cost of this service is higher than comparable services for New York.
As always, mobile notary service are always available, 24/7.
