Acupuncture License Renewal

For your license to remain valid, it must be renewed before the expiration date each year.

As a courtesy, license renewal applications are mailed to your mailing address of record approximately six (6) weeks before the license expiration date. If you do not receive a renewal notice, you may contact the Bureau to confirm your address and have a duplicate notice sent to you or you can renew online up to six weeks prior to your expiration date. You are responsible to timely renew your license whether you receive a renewal notice or not.  

When submitting your renewal application to the Bureau office, you must include responses to all questions, sign the application, and include payment of the appropriate fee(s). 

Please note: If you fail to renew your license before its expiration date a reinstatement fee will be required by Idaho Code 67-2614 and cannot be waived. In addition, you may be required to submit continuing education or other required documentation prior to the reinstatement of your license. If you are on active duty in the United States Armed Forces, your license will remain active without renewing it for six (6) months following your discharge from active duty.  Please contact the Bureau (208) 334-3233 or to provide the materials to document your active military status before your renewal date.  

The most efficient way to submit your renewal application and payment of fees is through the ONLINE renewal system. There are no additional fees for this service.
