Out of State Licensees, Temporary Licensees & Telehealth


The Vermont Legislature passed emergency legislation that was signed by Governor Scott on March 30, 2020 that allows individuals who typically cannot practice in Vermont the ability to practice in Vermont during the COVID-19 State of Emergency.

If you hold an out of state healthcare profession license in good standing, you may practice in Vermont without a Vermont license under the following circumstances:

  • If you are providing only telehealth to people in Vermont, you do not need a license and you do not have to provide your contact information to the Office of Professional Regulation; or
  • If you are providing services to Vermonters in a licensed facility, you do need to provide your contact information to the Office of Professional Regulation. Please click here to submit your information.
  • Only health care professionals are eligible to practice in Vermont without a Vermont license during the COVID-19 State of Emergency.

If you are a retired Vermont healthcare professional, we welcome you back into the healthcare workforce.

The Office of Professional Regulation is tracking the COVID-19 Impact on Exams. If you are a graduate of an approved professional program but you are unable to take the required exam due to COVID-19 please apply for a temporary license.

If you have questions if you are required to apply for a temporary license or provide your contact information to our office, please click here.

Please consider adding your contact information to the Medical Reserve Core.

We are very grateful that you are assisting Vermonters during this critical time.
