Liquor and Tobacco License Request for Application

Below are the four main steps involved in the Division's Licensing Process.

To ensure an understanding of the process, please be sure to review all four steps prior to beginning an application in Step 1.

Step 1. Complete an initial on- line application. All questions must be answered and the initial on- line application must be submitted by a person who is authorized by the entity. Click here for direct access to the specific license type files.

Step 2. Licensure Specialists will email the appropriate application and corresponding worksheet to an applicant after the initial on- line application is received. Please note: This documentation is specific to the type of license indicated in the application filed in Step 1. Once you possess all documents required for licensing (all documents must be in the name of the entity or non-entity that is to be licensed), call the licensing help desk at (603) 271-3523. The Licensing Help Desk will contact the area Investigator to conduct an inspection of the premise.

Step 3. After the site inspection is complete, please return the completed documents to the Licensing Help Desk. Again, please send electronic copies of all documentation and forms when possible.

Step 4. Once all paperwork has been received, a Licensure Specialist will contact the applicant to complete the licensing process. Should it be determined that any documentation is missing, the applicant will be instructed to send electronic copies to ensure all requirements are met for the issuance of a license.

If you have any questions you may call (603) 271-3523 or email the Licensing Helpdesk at
