Palau Digital Residency ID - To Obtain a California Notarization? (Field Report #4)

Updated: Sep 21, 2023

Getting an in-person notarization at a UPS store looks nothing like this stock image

This article is part of our series exploring what exactly the Palau digital residency ID can be used for.

I made my fourth attempt to use the Palau digital residency ID (“the ID”) on the week of September 18th, 2023

I tried to use the ID to obtain a California in-person notarization at a UPS store in Los Angeles.

Result: successful.

Explanation: To request a California marriage certificate via, one must submit a signed, notarized authorization form. I went to a UPS store in Los Angeles California to sign the form in front of a notary. The notary asked a few curious questions about Palau but took the digital residency ID nonetheless and completed the notarization and the transaction.

We have at least 16 more use-case experiments forthcoming over the next few months. I’ll continue trying to use the ID, and report the results here on Malakouti Law.
