All members of the professions regulated by the Medical Rehabilitation Therapists (Registration) Board of Nigeria (MRTB) must have a valid and current license to practice within the borders of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Practicing without a current valid license is illegal and punishable under the Enabling Laws establishing the MRTB. New members of the professions who have never been licensed should first apply to the MRTB for Registration and Licensure, after which they MUST maintain their licensure annually thereafter.
