NSW PTA application online

Post by thunderbird » 25 Jan 2019, 9:23 am

I applied for a PTA on NSW service website yesterday (paid the $30, as part of the process). I receive the receipt by email right after, but I cannot see the application in "My applications" tab. Any one here knows what would happen after submitting the application online? How can I check the status and roughly how long does it take before the actual PTA arrived? Much appreciated!

You check on FAR's site https://apps.police.nsw.gov.au/FPR/lice ... search.jsp

Longarm PTA took 7 days for me, handgun six weeks

If it's for a category that you haven't owned before, you'll wait a minimum of 28 days.
Processing time for A-B seems to be under a week at the moment (in addition to the 28 days)

Once approved, it will take roughly a week for them to send you the paperwork you need to take to the gun shop.

So if you already have that type of firearm (around 1-2 weeks, typically)
If you don't (around 6 weeks)

As the post before me stated, use that link to check the status.
Your PTA won't appear on Service NSW

Thanks guys. I actually found out how to check the progress as well.

For anyone who also has the same question:
Go to https://apps.police.nsw.gov.au/FPR/lice ... search.jsp
Enter your licence number and search. The status of the PTA/licence will appear in the result page.
