Community Currency Exchange Surety Bond Form

Guide to Applying for a Currency Exchange License

A Currency Exchange License is required for businesses that offer as their primary service the cashing of checks and selling money orders for a fee as well as engaging in similar activities. Licenses are issued on the basis of a "Need of Community" investigation. The Division will assess whether the community needs the proposed currency exchange and the effect it will have on the financial stability of existing currency exchanges. Licenses are valid for one year and may be renewed. A separate license is required for each location.

These five forms are all necessary for a completed application for a Currency Exchange license.
