The State of New Jersey does not hold reciprocal license agreements for General Contractors in other states. New Jersey doesn’t have reciprocity because they offer Home Improvement Contractor Registration as opposed to General Contractor Licensing.
Out-of-state contractors who want to work on residential and non-commercial construction projects in the State of New Jersey must obtain a Home Improvement Contractor Registration Certificate from the NJ Division of Consumer Affairs.
As part of the registration process, contractors are required to complete and submit an application to the Division along with all the required documents and fees.
*Along with the application, all out-of-state applicants must include a copy of their business’ New Jersey Certificate of Authority, and a copy of their Certificate of Formation/Incorporation for the state in which they reside.
