Bureau of Financial Institutions

Application Forms - Banks

Section 6.2.286 of the Code of Virginia sets forth the qualifications for obtaining a certificate of authority to begin a banking business in Virginia. New bank applications are analyzed for various factors, including, but not limited to, the experience and strength of the proposed directors and officers, adequate capitalization to support growth, the level of community support, the banking market conditions, and the economic characteristics of the region and primary service area. We consider all the factors required by the Code to make a determination whether a particular applicant qualifies. It is mutually beneficial for any new bank organizing group to meet with the Bureau of Financial Institutions in the early stages of formation to discuss their plans.

The following are applications and related forms for new banks and for existing banks and bank holding companies, including applications for branch offices/relocations, conversion to a state bank charter, bank mergers, and acquisitions of banks. Each application form includes filing instructions. Some application types require the filing of supplemental forms. In each instance, the appropriate supplemental forms are listed directly following the application form. It is important to carefully read and follow all instructions and to provide full and complete responses. Investigation of the application may be delayed if the application is incomplete.
