Virginia allows notary to produce notarized exact copies of documents. Documents such as birth certificates, death certificates, marriage certificates, and court orders may not be notarized as exact copies because they all have keeper of the records. Documents such as passports, driver licenses, professional licenses, and transcripts can be notarized as exact copies. I insist that the copy be made in my presence. The charge is $5 per notary (not $5 per page), cost of duplication and negotiated travel fee.
