Licensure of Nonresident Pharmacies

A nonresident pharmacy that ships, mails, or delivers any dispensed drug to a resident in this state pursuant to a legally issued prescription are required to be licensed. Rules enacted by the Board of Pharmacy were established July 1, 1997, as the date of initial licensure.

The following is required for licensure:

  • Completed application form and fee of $200.
  • Copy of latest inspection report from the home state Board of Pharmacy.
  • Copy of the current home state pharmacy license.

A change of ownership requires a new application as stated above. The Nonresident Pharmacy Permit is not transferable.

A change of pharmacist-in-charge, address, or location requires notification to the Board of Pharmacy office in writing. The permit should be returned if a new permit is requested.

The annual expiration date is June 30.  Renewal notices will be sent to the address on record, so it is important that the Board of Pharmacy have the correct information on file.
