(a) Unless denied licensure pursuant to Section 27-7-19, a nonresident person shall receive a nonresident producer license if all of the following are satisfied:
(1) The person has submitted or transmitted to the commissioner a copy of the application for licensure that the person submitted to his or her home state or, in lieu of the same, a completed Uniform Application.
(2) The person has submitted the proper request for licensure and has paid the fees required under Section 27-4-2.
(3) The person's home state awards nonresident producer licenses to residents of this state on the same basis.
(4) The person is currently licensed as a resident producer and is in good standing in the state of his or her residence.
(b) The commissioner may verify the producer's licensing status through the database maintained by the NAIC, its affiliates or subsidiaries.
(c) A nonresident producer who moves from one state to another state or a resident producer who moves from this state to another state shall file a change of address and provide certification from the new resident state within 30 days of the change of legal residence. No fee or license application is required.
(d) Notwithstanding any other provision of this chapter, a person licensed as a surplus line broker in his or her home state shall receive a nonresident surplus line broker license pursuant to subsection (a). Except as provided in subsection (a), nothing in this section otherwise amends or supersedes any provision of Article 2 of Chapter 10 of this title.
(e) Notwithstanding any other provision of this chapter, a person licensed as a limited lines insurance producer in his or her home state shall receive a nonresident limited lines producer license, pursuant to subsection (a), granting the same scope of authority as granted under the license issued by the producer's home state. For the purposes of this subsection, limited lines insurance is any authority granted by the home state which restricts the authority of the license to less than the total authority prescribed in the associated major lines pursuant to subdivisions (1) to (6), inclusive, of subsection (a) of Section 27-7-14.1.
(f) A nonresident producer's satisfaction of his or her home state's continuing education requirements for licensed insurance producers shall constitute satisfaction of this state's continuing education requirements if the nonresident producer's home state recognizes the satisfaction of its continuing education requirements imposed upon producers from this state on the same basis.
(g) Except for the requirements imposed by this section and Section 27-7-29, the commissioner shall waive any requirements for a nonresident license applicant, including the provisions of Section 27-3-29, with a valid license from his or her home state if the applicant's home state awards nonresident licenses to residents of this state on the same basis.
