Moving to Oregon? What You Need to Know

Out-of-State Applicants

Oregon  
If you are planning to move to Oregon and are currently licensed or have a certain amount of professional experience in another state, chances are you will be able to gain licensure in Oregon quickly and easily if you meet Oregon qualification requirements.
 
Just be sure to review the specific requirements for out-of-state applicants described below.  We want to assist you in your successful move to our state!
 
Affidavit of Licensure
Applicants holding an active license in another state or country in which the Oregon Health Licensing Agency (OHLA) recognizes the education, examination and licensing requirements must provide an original Affidavit of Licensure mailed directly to OHLA from the licensing state with an official seal in a sealed envelope. If the seal is broken the document is considered invalid.
 
Or, applicants may have the Affidavit of Licensure electronically transmitted to OHLA from the licensing state. Preauthorization for electronic transmission is required.
 
For Additional Licensure Requirements
For more information on additional requirements for licensure, please go to How to Get Licensed.
