South Dakota

Remote Online Notarization Law:

Online notarization is valid and enforceable in South Dakota because of interstate recognition.

Even though South Dakota does not have a remote online notarization (RON) law, South Dakota 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 South Dakota when performed in accordance with the laws of the notary’s commissioning state. The applicable interstate recognition laws in South Dakota are S.D. Codified Laws §§ 18-5-3 & 15-6-28(a).
