For Producers

The Agents Licensing Section performs licensing for all lines of insurance for individuals and business entities, and tracking functions for the entire Bureau of Insurance. The section screens applications, issues agent/agency licenses, tracks appointments, processes appointment renewals, monitors regulatory requirements for licensing, and responds to all informational requests about agents. There are approximately 198,058 insurance agents, 1,500 insurance companies, and 13,210 insurance agencies doing business in Virginia.

All electronic processes may be accessed from the Online Services page.

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. 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 of Insurance does not print or mail licenses.
