Licenses for Customers with “A” or “G” Visas

    Posted by MAIA on October 7, 2019

    Individuals with “A” or “G” visas typically have diplomatic or consular immunity. If they do have immunity, they are not eligible to obtain a license from the Massachusetts RMV; they can only obtain one from the U.S. Department of State.

    If an individual with one of these visas does NOT have this immunity, they are provided with a “Non-Eligibility Letter” from the Office of Foreign Missions. This letter indicates that the individual is not eligible for a license from the U.S. Department of State; therefore these individuals ARE eligible for Massachusetts licenses from the RMV.

    Customers with an “A” or “G” visa who present a “Non-Eligibility Letter” can apply for a Massachusetts license. They must meet all the licensing requirements (including lawful presence, residency, and identification documentation).
