As previously announced, effective September 13, 2018, ECFMG began requiring that the Certification of Identification Form (Form 186) be completed on-line using NotaryCam.com. If you submit an Application for ECFMG Certification on or after September 13, 2018, the fee for using the NotaryCam service is included in the fee for Application for ECFMG Certification. You will not need to make a payment to NotaryCam at the time of your notary session.
If you submitted an Application for ECFMG Certification prior to September 13, 2018, the fee for using NotaryCam was not included in the fee you paid for the Application for ECFMG Certification. If you submitted your Application for ECFMG Certification prior to that date and need to complete Form 186, you will be required to pay the notarization fee directly to NotaryCam at the time of your on-line session. NotaryCam accepts all major credit cards and PayPal.
ECFMG has provided information to NotaryCam that will allow the notary to determine whether an applicant is responsible for payment at the time of service. Once payment has been made, the notary will submit your notarized Form 186 directly to ECFMG.
