Thanks. This is great. From what you sent, I need to apply for two types of licenses: employment agency license and a basic business license. Are these all the licenses I need to operate legally in DC? Another online source mentioned that I need a District of Columbia Employer Paid Personnel Services License plus two more licenses in addition to the ones you brought up. Can you please clarify?

Response: Employment Agency License is under Basic Business License Category. From my research, you only need to apply for Employment Agency License. That is, applying for Employment Agency License means that you are applying for a Basic Business License. You need to follow the step-by-step instructions given on the links that I previously provided and you should be okay. Also and more importantly, there is an online application, which I also provided you a link to. You should use the online application route. If you do something wrong, you would be quickly alerted of your error.
