NABP Emergency Passport Program

Beginning June 23, 2021, applications for the NABP Emergency Passport Program will no longer be accepted. In addition, on June 30, 2021, the program will cease to operate. At this time, all Emergency Passports will be made inactive.

State emergency orders pertaining to emergency licensure are being rescinded, and states are returning to standard licensing processes. As states return to normal business processes, NABP is closing the Emergency Passport Program. If you would like to practice in a state where you do not hold a permanent license, check the board of pharmacy website for licensure requirements and instructions on obtaining a license.

The NABP Emergency Passport Program was created to provide critical licensure and board action/disciplinary screening to meet criteria set by our member boards of pharmacy as a means for states to grant temporary emergency licensure safely and efficiently for pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and pharmacist interns in response to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
