§ 61.1. Scope.

 (a)  Chapter 41 of the BCL (relating to foreign business corporations), and this chapter apply to foreign corporations for profit, except the following:

   (1)  One or more of the following institutions or similar Federally chartered institutions engaged in this Commonwealth in activities similar to those conducted by banking institutions, saving associations or credit unions:

     (i)   National banking associations organized under The National Bank Act, the act of June 3, 1864 (13 Stat. 99) (12 U.S.C.A. § §  1—392).

     (ii)   Federal savings and loan associations and Federal mutual savings banks organized under the Home Owners’ Loan Act of 1933 (12 U.S.C.A. § §  1461—1463b, 1464—1466a, 1467, 1467a and 1468).

     (iii)   Federal credit unions organized under the Federal Credit Union Act (12 U.S.C.A. § §  1751, 1752, 1752a—1756, 1757—1761d, 1762—1772c, 1781—1789a, 1790 and 1795—1795k).

   (2)  Other Federal corporations intended by the Congress to be treated for state law purposes as a domestic corporation of this Commonwealth.

§ 61.3. Qualification of insurance companies.

 A foreign corporation for profit which engages in the business of writing insurance as principal is a foreign business corporation and, before it does business in this Commonwealth, shall qualify as follows:

   (1)  If the corporation intends to limit its activities in this Commonwealth to business other than writing insurance as principal, the corporation shall file Form DSCB:15-4124 (Application for a Certificate of Authority-Foreign Corporation).

   (2)  In other cases, the corporation shall qualify through the Insurance Department. Sections 1103 and 4121(c) of the BCL (relating to definitions; and admission of foreign corporations) provide that a foreign corporation for profit which is qualified to do business in this Commonwealth under The Insurance Department Act of 1921 (40 P. S. § §  1—297.4), is thereby a qualified foreign business corporation and is not required to procure a separate certificate of authority to do business in this Commonwealth from the Department.
