Applications are to be accompanied by the application fee. This fee is 25 fee units, which is $38.25 inclusive of GST for financial year 2016-17 and is indexed annually.

You may apply to have the fee waived if:

  • Where you are a member of parliament and the application is in connection with their official duty; or
  • The you are able to gives us information which shows that the information sought is intended to be used for a purpose that is of general public interest or benefit.

Make sure you have looked for the information before you make a formal application, because if the information is otherwise available your application may be refused without the return of you application fee.
