The VCVC certificate is valid for five (5) years from the date it is issued. Unless the certificant has obtained a permanent visa or has become a U.S. citizen, the VCVC certificate must be renewed every five years in order for the certificant to continue practicing in the U.S.
Certificants will need to supply updated employment information as well as licensure status to complete the VCVC renewal process.
NBCOT recommends that certificants submit renewal applications two to three (2-3) months prior to the VCVC expiration date.
For all the requirements, forms, and the application for the VCVC renewal submission, please download and carefully review the VCVC Renewal Handbook, located on the right sidebar.
