Anyone engaging in any type of business in the City of Valdez must first register with the City. Registration is done by simply completing a standard business registration form and submitting a copy of your State of Alaska business license. The registration is renewed annually, usually in January, by submitting the annual renewal.
In addition to the standard business registration form, additional information and documentation maybe required depending on the type of business.
Submit if you are starting a new business in Valdez and/or are planning on conducting business in Valdez even if your company resides elsewhere. Our office verifies that you hold a valid State of Alaska Business License and then you are issued a "green letter" stating that you can conduct business in Valdez.
Request an Itinerant Vendor license. The license is valid for up to a maximum of 180 days. For further information, review Ordinance # 07-04.
$50 fee is waived per Resolution #12-72. A $500 bond is due in the form of cash or cashier's check and can be redeemed after the 180 day period or held by the City if the vendor wishes to do business the following year and does not want the bond back.
