Just lodged one. It took a whole 2 minutes to complete. Wonder how long it will take to be approved.

Come to think of it, Do i get a paper PTA in mail or is the PTA all digital now.... :unknown:

I sent 2 pta’s In the mail 2 1/2 weeks ago now, wonder if implementating this new system will make the wait longer? Are they still doing paper applications going forward, or fully online?

paper applications should still be fine. im sure they are still getting heaps of them. two firearms dealers emailed me about week or so ago saying they would help customers log in and go through the process.

the "good reason" part is strange. so many reasons, yet you cant choose more than one. and the reasons for owning firearms are on my licence.

Yeah, call me cynical lol but I don't like that change at all...all too easy for them to look up your current ownership and query the "need" (hope this isn't a softening up to go like WA down the track) Let's just say I have *ahem* a few lol

Just put in my last PTA and I'm bloody glad it was paper :P

Nice! For comparison, I’d submitted a paper one which was received by the registry on the 5th of October. I received it in the mail on Monday morning - so the online system seems significantly quicker

According to NSW Police my PTA was approved in a couple of days. I take it they still mail it out to you like before?

I was told today that all the online submission does is cut out the mail-time...its still allegedly a couple of weeks or more backlog getting through the pile they already have, online or not its a first come first served. Posted a mail PTA 10 days ago they have no record of it being received so far, but as the FAR chick said "it could well be sitting in the pile and hasn't been seen yet, give it another couple of weeks before getting back to us". And this was after 1 hr 35mins in the queue...I miss the days when at least they told you "You are 5th in the queue" lol

Meanwhile my dealer has the gun and has been twiddling his thumbs...and this is my LAST GUN EVER so understandably I'm a bit antsy lol

My pta i lodged online was marked "Valid" 24 hours later and in my mail box 7 days later.

If only we could get a digital PTA to eliminate the return 7-10 days postage it would be great.
