If Applying for Minnesota License     

If you are applying for a Minnesota license, you must provide license verification from any state or province where you have been licensed in the past ten years.  You may print and send this  request form  or simply contact the other boards to learn their procedure for verifying licenses and to find out if there is a fee. Different states have different processes and the processing time varies, so please plan accordingly. Online verifications are not sufficient for your Minnesota veterinary license application.


If Applying for License in Another State 

If you are applying for a veterinary license in another state or Canadian province, there is usually a requirement for license verification, commonly called a letter of good standing, from other states where you have been licensed.  The fee to have the Minnesota Board of Veterinary Medicine send a license verification to another licensing board is $25. 
Online license verifications are temporarily unavailable. The fee must be paid by check or money order accompanied by the  paper form . If you simply need to verify a license number or status you may use our  online service site .  


Minnesota Statutes, section 156.015, subdivision 1: “The Board may charge a fee of $25 per license verification to a licensee for verification of licensure status provided to other veterinary licensing boards.”
