The New Mexico Regulation and Licensing Department is committed to assisting Military Servicemembers, Veterans, and their families.
State Boards and Commissions that issue occupational or professional licenses offer expedited licensure and waiver of initial licensing fees to military service members, their spouses and dependent children, and veterans. Eligibility also requires that the applicant hold a current license in good standing from another jurisdiction that meets New Mexico’s minimal licensing requirements for the same license, and successful completion of any required background check.
Check each respective board or commission’s webpage to access their application forms or online application portal for more information, instructions on how to apply, and contact information for staff to answer any questions. Some boards and commissions offer further waivers of licensure requirements for military members with active licenses, and additional information may be found in the respective regulations on each board and commission webpage.
