Rhode Island

Remote Online Notarization Law:

Online notarization is valid and enforceable in Rhode Island because of interstate recognition.

Even though Rhode Island does not have a remote online notarization (RON) law, Rhode Island recognizes notarizations that are properly performed by notaries of other states. Therefore, an online notarization performed by a notary commissioned in a state with a RON law is valid and enforceable in Rhode Island when performed in accordance with the laws of the notary’s commissioning state. The applicable interstate recognition laws in Rhode Island are R.I. Gen. Laws §§ 42-30.1-10 & 34-12-1 to 34-12-3.
