(225 ILCS 115/13)
(from Ch. 111, par. 7013)
(Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2024)
Licensure without examination; endorsement.
The Department may license as a
veterinarian or certified veterinary technician, without examination,
but upon payment of the required fee, an applicant who has a license or
certificate in good standing to practice in another jurisdiction. However, the
requirements for licensure of veterinarians and certified veterinary technicians in the jurisdiction in which the
applicant was licensed must have been, at the date of licensure, substantially
equivalent to the requirements in force in this State on that date.
Applicants have 3 years from the date of application to complete the
application process. If the process has not been completed in 3 years,
the application shall be denied, the fee forfeited and the applicant must
reapply and meet the requirements in effect at the time of reapplication.
