Why do I need to have Form 1583 notarized?

Due to USPS regulations, you need to have the form notarized before sending it to us. The notary's seal proves that you are the person who is authorized to receive mail in your name and/or your company's name.

You can find notaries almost anywhere. Banks and courthouses normally have a notary onsite. Check with your bank first, as some offer this service free to their customers.

If you live outside of the USA, you can have a local non-U.S. notary verify your identity. The U.S. embassies also provide notary service for a fee. Bank officials, lawyers, and government officials can also endorse your form with their signature and official seal.

Skip the notary!

In place of the notary, you can take a selfie photo of yourself holding your photo ID.

Submit your selfie, along with your signed Form 1583 and IDs. 

  • The ID in the selfie photo must be clear and legible for verification. 

If you choose this option, the notary requirement will be waived. This option applies to both domestic and international customers.
