The State of Nebraska does not hold reciprocal licensing agreements with other state for General Contractors. This is because Nebraska requires contractor registration rather than licensing.
Out-of-state contractors who want to work in Nebraska must complete the online registration process with the NE Department of Labor. Registration is required for any contractor making more than $5,000 performing work on construction projects within the state.
*If the contractor makes less than $5,000 per year performing construction, registration is not required.
As part of the online registration process, contractors are required to:
- Provide basic information about their business
- Provide tax identification numbers
- Provide proof of worker’s compensation insurance
- Pay the registration fee
- Submit the online application to the Department of Labor
