The professional standard of practice would be to accept foriegn ID’s.

The Notary can execute notary if issued by a government agency and includes the bearer’s recent photograph, signature and physical description. But foreign IDs don’t always come with all those elements.

California allows driver’s licenses issued by Mexico and Canada that contain a serial number, photograph, physical description and signature. Florida also allows these driver’s licenses if the license has a serial number. In both of these states, the license does not have to be current as long as it was issued within the past five years.
