Application processing time

The following must be received by the Department, completed in full, before the Department can begin to process an application:

After all completed documents and the relevant application fee are received, in most circumstances, a Department officer will contact the applicant to arrange an appointment to visit the premises to which the application relates, to ensure that there is capability to comply with legislative requirements.

The officer may identify deficiencies during the visit. If so, the application cannot proceed any further until documented evidence has been received by the Department that the deficiencies have been rectified.

From that time, it may take up to an additional six weeks for the application process to be completed.

Processing time may be reduced substantially if there are no document errors and any identified deficiencies are rectified promptly.
