Priority service is offered for all litter, transfer, export & duplicate applications. When paying the required fee this essentially brings your application to the front of the queue.

The fee does NOT include express post.
We can accept payment by either cheque, money order, direct deposit or credit card payment on the form. If you are attending the office we have cash & EFTPOS facilities available.
For security reasons, we can only take payment over the phone if the application you are making payment for is in the office already.
