Collection agencies operating in Hawaii are licensed and regulated by the state’s Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs.
Obtaining a surety bond is required as a condition of licensing. The surety bond requirement for collection agencies is as follows:

For 3 or More Locations
If your Hawaii collection agency has 3 or more locations in the state, a signed application and credit review by an underwriter are also required. Good credit will be required for approval and the response is typically received within a few business hours after submission.
Once the premium is paid for your bond, our agency issues it to you immediately. Upon receipt, you’ll sign your bond as Principal and have your bond notarized before filing. Our agency will have the bond notarized as Surety.
The address to file your surety bond is:
