Certificate Validation

You may validate any certificate that is issued by the Division and that contains a validation number under the printed seal of the State of New Jersey. For validation of a Certificate of Authority you will need to use the Document Locator Number. This application is not available for any certificate which contains a gold embossed seal.

Due to a recent upgrade, if you are attempting to verify an Apostille/Certification with certificate number starting with 85 printed after September 27, 2023, validations will need to be made via calling our hotline at 609-292-9292 or emailing NJ.NotaryUnit@treas.nj.gov.

Enter the Validation Number shown on the bottom left of the Certificate you are seeking to validate.
