How long does it take to get a VA ABC License?


Alcohol licensing in Virginia is a process that requires a 30 day objection period for retail and industry license applicants. Legal publication and a posting notice are required to put the public on notice that a license has been applied for. The 30 day objection period begins when the first of two legal publications run in the local newspaper. Any objectors must submit their objection in writing to the VA ABC Authority within 30 days of the first legal publication. Attention to detail and the accuracy of your supporting documents play a vital role in how quickly your license will be approved.
