How to do it?

Step 1. Digital Signature

To carry out the signature and identification in an online notarial act, it is necessary to have an ICP-Brasil digital certificate, the same one used to file an Individual Income Tax Return (IRPF) in Brazil, or an e-Notary Digital Certificate, installed on your cell phone. The Notarized Certificate can be issued in a Notary Public Office in Brazil dully accredited as a Brazilian Notary Authority, upon presentation of your identity document and proof of address, or through the e-Notariado platform, through videoconferencing.

Step 2. Videoconferencing and Signature

With your digital certificate, just login into the e-Notariado platform, choose the service desired and schedule your videoconference, which will be conducted by the notary public, who will indicate the opening of the recording, the start date and time, and the full name of the participants. At the end of the act, the content will be read in full, and the participants' agreement will be confirmed. Documents may be sent by email for validation along with the digital signature. The effects of the act are immediate.
