With just a small fee of $37, Georgia notaries are commissioned for four years. Georgia residents must apply to become notaries in the counties of their residence. However, after receiving their licenses, they may notarize documents in any Georgia county.
If you live in a neighboring state, but you are employed in Georgia, you may apply to be a notary in the county of your employment.
