Virginia Occupational Therapy Inactive Status 

A licensed occupational therapist or an occupational therapy assistant who holds a current, unrestricted license in Virginia shall, upon a request on the renewal application and submission of the required fee, be issued an inactive license. The holder of an inactive license shall not be required to maintain hours of active practice or meet the continued competency requirements and shall not be entitled to perform any act requiring a license to practice occupational therapy in Virginia.

Reactivation

An inactive licensee may reactivate his license upon submission of the following:

    • An application as required by the board;
    • A payment of the difference between the current renewal fee for inactive licensure and the renewal fee for active licensure;
    • If the license has been inactive for two to six years, documentation of having engaged in the active practice of occupational therapy or having completed a board-approved practice of 160 hours within 60 consecutive days under the supervision of a licensed occupational therapist; and
    • Documentation of completed continued competency hours equal to the requirement for the number of years, not to exceed four (4) years, in which the license has been inactive.

More than Six Years

An occupational therapist or an occupational therapy assistant who has had an inactive license for six (6) years or more and who has not engaged in active practice shall serve a board-approved practice of 320 hours to be completed in four (4) consecutive months under the supervision of a licensed occupational therapist.
