Licensing Area: Pest Control
ATTENTION: Insurance Certificate Information Electronic Online Submittal System
Provides faster processing of contractor insurance certificates.
Inform your insurance provider to submit your insurance certificate information online at https://pvl.ehawaii.gov/inikua
**New Online Submittal Option**
If your license is forfeited or your insurance is provided by a leasing company or out of state insurance provider; your certificate should be submitted via the “e-File Upload” online option.
Important: To Reduce the Processing Time of Insurance Certificates
DO NOT submit multiple copies of the same insurance certificate online and/or hardcopy as this will only increase the review and processing time of all certificates received.
Emailed certificates will not be accepted for processing.
