For those seeking to notarize documents for use in the United States, you may wish to consider using alternative options, to include utilizing a remote notarial service provider. A growing number of states accept documents notarized through online services. You will need to research whether they can be used in the state where your document will be filed. Remote notarization could fulfill your need for notary services quickly without the need for in-person interaction.
Please enroll in the Department of State’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) for updated information and alerts for U.S. citizens in Turkmenistan.
