Although the Capitol Complex is open to the public the Department of State is not open for visitors to enter NOB offices. Those constituents who wish to drop of materials for the Bureau of Corporations and Charitable Organizations or the Bureau of Elections should be advised to utilize the drop box across the street at the entrance of the Keystone Complex. Those with questions can be provided with the following phone number: 717-783-3945 and their call will be forwarded to the appropriate agency.

Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs staff are continuing to process applications as quickly as possible during this emergency. In order to increase the number of health care providers to respond to the COVID-19 emergency, the Governor has suspended certain licensing provisions. Due to the public health risk surrounding the Coronavirus, we are currently unable to accept walk-in customers and phone calls. For all inquiries, please utilize the email addresses found on the Board Contact Information webpage.

The processing of licenses and permits for health care practitioners continues to be a priority. Please refer to www.pals.pa.gov/verify to check the status of a license or permit.
