Frequently Asked Questions







Verification of Licensure

Effective November 01, 2019, the Virginia Board of Funeral Directors and Embalmers will implement an electronic process for Verification of Licensure. The Virginia Board of Funeral Directors and Embalmers electronically sends the Verification of Licensure with available public information to the jurisdiction that you designate.

To request an electronic verification of licensure to be sent to another licensing jurisdiction, please submit the Verification Form; include your full name, license number or social security number, your current mailing address and the email address of where you want the verification to be sent. Attach the required processing fee of $50.00 check or money order made payable to the Treasurer of Virginia.

Allow five to seven business days for processing. The board verifies profession, license number, issue date, expiration date, how the licensee obtained Virginia licensure, and if there have been any disciplinary actions. Should a licensee need their national scores verified, they should contact the International Conference of Funeral Service Boards (NBE)

Verifications received without the required fee will not be processed.

Mail your request and fee to:

Board of Funeral Directors and Embalmers
Perimeter Center
9960 Mayland Drive, Suite 300
Henrico, Virginia 23233-1463
