STEP 2: Get a resident license in your new home state.
- Immediately report a change to your residence address, your mailing address, your e-mail address and your telephone numbers. Submit an address change to the Insurance Licensing Section using Form L-CHG (click here to download).
- Keep your business address in Arizona until you obtain a resident license from the insurance department in your new home state.
- Many states will require you to cancel your Arizona resident license in order to become licensed as a resident in the new home state. To do this, submit a request for a clearance letter (Form L-CLR). See the "Clearance Letter" section below for important instructions.
STEP 3: Notify us that you have your new resident license within 30 days of obtaining the resident license in your new home state. ARS § 20–287(B).
- Send e-mail to Licensing@azinsurance.gov containing the following information:
- Your full name (first, middle and last);
- Your ARIZONA insurance license number; and,
- The state to which you relocated and your insurance license number in that state.

To become licensed as a resident in another state, you may need to cancel your Arizona resident license and may need to provide the other state a "clearance letter," which certifies to the other state that you were licensed in good standing as of the date your Arizona-resident license was canceled.
To cancel your Arizona license and request a clearance letter, submit the original of Form L-CLR with a $3.00 fee for each clearance letter you need.
If you select the "I am RELOCATING" option on Form L-CLR, report your new business address to us immediately after the insurance department in your new home state issues a license to you.
