(3) Surety bonds as required by WAC 208-690-040 or 208-690-041.
(4) An application fee as prescribed by WAC 208-690-130(1). The application fee is not refundable. The director may require all fees to be paid through the NMLS.

(7) If you are engaged in virtual currency storage, an information security audit report which at a minimum: Occurred within one year of the date of an application submission; and was completed by a company or individual with information security credentials acceptable to the director.
(8) Application for a proposed license or trade name.
