An architect who is not a resident of New York and has not established a business in the State may apply for a limited permit to work on a specific project in New York. A limited permit is valid for the duration of the project or a period of three years, whichever comes first. If the project exceeds a three-year period, the limited permit may be renewed. Only one limited permit will be issued in an applicant’s lifetime.
Limited permits are issued only to individual persons and are not issued to business entities or corporations of any kind. A limited permit only allows the individual permit holder to practice architectural services on a specific project located in New York, but it does not authorize a business entity to provide professional services.
