The United States Postal Service (USPS) requires all Commercial Mail Receiving Agents (CMRA), like Earth Class Mail, to collect a notarized USPS Form 1583 from customers. This form verifies your identity and provides official consent for Earth Class Mail to receive and manage mail on your behalf.
Two forms of identification must be presented to our online notary partners during the notarization session. A primary ID with a photo, and a secondary ID with a home address.
The notary company that we partner with speaks both English and Spanish so you must be comfortable navigating the notarization interview in one of those languages. Your ID must also be in a language that uses the Latin alphabet.
Primary Identification Card

Matricula Consular (Mexico) A Matricula Consular card is an identification card issued by the Government of Mexico through its consulate offices to Mexican nationals residing outside Mexico.
