Prior to this, MOJ had carried out a pilot program for remote video notarization in 2022 and announced the first 94 notarial institutions offering this service.

MOJ has published a list of 295 notarial institutions and embassies and consulates abroad that carry out remote video notarization.

You can accept this service if you want to get a notarization in China but do not want to come to China.
