In Austria, according to § 90a NO, the notarization of signatures may be carried out in an online procedure. On notarity you can have signatures notarized digitally by our partner notaries. The online notarized signatures can be used in many European countries without an apostille.
All notarial deeds under Austrian law can be drawn up by our partner notaries via notarity. The only exceptions are testamentary dispositions (testaments, last will).
notarity has a network of Austrian partner notaries. Our notaries are experienced and trained in the use of notarity and digital services.
notarity is available free of charge to clients of notaries. The costs for the notarial service are agreed directly between the partner notary and the client, depending on the type of service and the work involved.
notarity can be used by citizens of over 100 countries for online notarial appointments. Restrictions apply to the identification process. You can find a detailed overview of the supported countries here.
In principle, the documents are created purely online. The documents are provided with qualified electronic signatures and can be used digitally.
A paper certificate can also be sent by post on request.
On notarity, documents can be authenticated for use all over the world. In 21 European countries, no apostille is required. Austria has bilateral agreements with these states according to which notarised documents are exempt from any further proof of authenticity. So an apostille is not required either.
These are: Austria, Germany, Belgium, Bosnia-Herzogovina, Bulgaria, Finland, France, Italy, Croatia, Liechtenstein, Macedonia, Montenegro, Norway, Poland, Sweden, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Turkey, Hungary.
For use in other countries, an apostille can be obtained from notarity.
If you want to use notarised documents in other countries than Austria, please discuss this with the respective recipient of the documents. We cannot guarantee that documents notarized via notarity will be accepted outside of Austria.
Send us a message and we will reply as soon as possible. We are looking forward to hearing from you!
