Moving or planning to work outside of Virginia with a VA Nail License?

If you move out of state after obtaining your Nail Technician license in Virginia, you will also have to transfer your nail license into the state you move to.  Nail Techs can be multiple state licensed, especially convenient for those living on the state borders of Virginia. Reciprocity is not needed for services sold on military base salons as they usually just require a license from any state to sell services on base. 

 

Each state has their own regulations on how they will accept a Virginia Nail Technician license for transfer into their state by "reciprocity" or "endorsement". 

Some or all of the following is required to transfer a Virginia Nail Technician License into another state:

  1. pay a license fee
  2. obtain more education hours and/or proof of working hours in a licensed salon
  3. taking exams in the state you move into (Virginia is national as of Jan 2017)
