Apply for/Print License Online
The Agents Licensing Section processes applications for licensure in date received
order. Please allow a minimum of 15 business days for processing before contacting
the Bureau concerning the status of an application. The Bureau of Insurance does not print or mail licenses. For applications submitted through
Sircon, the license printing service is free for up to 30 days after the application
has been approved. For applications submitted through NIPR, a Sircon service fee
will be applied to print the license.
The Bureau encourages resident applicants to first obtain their Virginia State Police criminal history record report (CHRR) and related documents before submitting the electronic application. Applicants using Sircon's Compliance Express (CX) should upload all attachments including the CHRR and submit them with the electronic application.
