(b) the person has submitted the proper request for licensure and has paid the fees required by 33-2-708;
(c) the person has submitted or transmitted to the commissioner the application for licensure that the person submitted to the person's home state or a completed application in a form approved by the commissioner; and
(d) the person's home state awards nonresident insurance producer licenses to residents of this state on the same basis.
(2) A person licensed as a surplus lines producer in that person's home state must receive a nonresident surplus lines producer license upon meeting the requirements of subsection (1).
