Can an online notary or e-notary
be used to notarize a document
to be apostilled in Texas?

Yes, as of October 1st, 2023, the Texas Secretary of State will now accept online notarizations, e-notarizations, remote notarization, or virtual notarizations on any type of non-recordable document but only if it’s done by a licensed Texas e-notary public (no other states or country notaries) and the proper notary jurat or acknowledgement is attached to it.

This means you no longer have to be physically in front of a Texas notary to sign and get a document notarized if you want a non-recordable document apostilled or authenticated in the State of Texas.
