Are online notarizations / notarial acts legal?

Yes, in Austria almost all notarizations of signatures and notarial deeds can also be processed online. This does not apply to testamentary dispositions (wills).

Notarized copies cannot be made online either. For this, the original document to be copied must be presented to a notary.

In individual cases, a notary will be happy to advise you whether the service can also be carried out online.

Documents with notarized signatures can also be used without an apostille in many countries in Europe. However, if the document is to be used outside of Austria, we recommend that you discuss the procedure with the recipient of the document beforehand.

If you need an apostille on a notarized document, please contact us. We will be happy to help you with this.
