You usually prove this with a Certificate of Good Standing, sometimes referred to as a Certificate of Existence or a Certificate of Fact, from the state in which you are registered as a Domestic Corporation. Cost of a Good Standing Certificate for your Domestic Corporation varies from state to state.
If you already have a Good Standing Certificate please note that it must be dated no older than 30 days from the date of your application for Wyoming Corporation Foreign Qualification.
If the date on your Good Standing Certificate is older than 30 days then you need to get an updated certificate. PCF can get your Good Standing Certificate quickly and easily from any state.

2. Choose a name for your Wyoming Foreign Corporation
PCF will check to make sure that your Wyoming Foreign Corporation name is available, conforms to state of Wyoming Corporation naming regulations, and will reserve the Foreign Corporation name with the Wyoming Secretary of State.
Your Wyoming Foreign Corporation name can identify the type of products and services your business will provide; or it may be the name of the founder; or it can be a combination of the two or something else.
In any case, the Wyoming Foreign Corporation name that you choose must be distinguishable from the name of any other registered Wyoming Corporation or other business entity and the name must also be different from any reserved names on record with the state of Wyoming. Your Wyoming Foreign Corporation name must not imply that it was formed for a purpose other than that stated in the Articles of Incorporation for your Domestic Corporation and your Wyoming Foreign Corporation name must not be a name that is likely to mislead the public.
The name of a Wyoming Foreign Corporation must include the word "Corporation" or "Incorporated" or an abbreviation of one of these words.

The individual or company that is registered with the state of Wyoming to receive all correspondence on behalf of the Wyoming Foreign Corporation is called a "Registered Agent". You may act as your own Registered Agent, however, many Wyoming Foreign Corporations hire a Registered Agent because they don't have a physical address within the state of Wyoming or to provide a distinct level of privacy.

4. File Registration Documents with the Wyoming Secretary of State
