Solicitor's Permit

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT - As a precautionary measure to maintain the health and safety of all, the Sheriff’s Office has suspended fingerprinting for Solicitor’s Permits. In a few weeks we will re-visit this matter. Look for future announcements on Facebook and If you have any questions about this, please contact us 804-365-6110. We apologize for the inconvenience but look forward to normal operations as soon as possible.

Solicitors in Hanover County must have a permit to go door to door or location to location to sell any goods or services or accept subscriptions or orders. Fingerprints and a photo will be taken before a permit is issued. There is a $20 fee. Please see detailed information on how to get a permit and the required application (PDF).

Organizations that require multiple solicitor permits for employees are requested to contact 804-365-6110 to make an appointment and limit each appointment to 3 employees.
