Current License Application Processing Timeframe Information
Obtaining a liquor license is necessary for all establishments selling any alcoholic beverages. Liquor licensing in Oregon is a joint effort of the applicant, local authority (city or county), and the OLCC. The application process for a liquor license can be thorough and will require several kinds of documentation to ensure you meet state requirements.
Please anticipate and plan for longer periods of time between submission of the application and its assignment to an investigator (approximately 60 days), as well as longer periods of time between assignment to an investigator and license issuance or approval of a license modification request (approximately 60 additional days—longer if involving a basis to deny or restrict the license). To speed up the processing timeframe, please be sure to do the following at the appropriate times:
- Submit the local governing body (LGB) application packet to the LGB as soon as you receive the packet from OLCC to avoid additional delay.
We are working diligently to process applications as quickly as possible. If you have any questions about the status of your application, please contact your investigator or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
