Pay for your blue card application

If you submitted your application via the online application process system, you can pay via credit card.

If your employer or someone else is paying for your application, please ensure you have your BPOINT receipt number ready to enter when asked.

If you have submitted your application via another method, you can use the following payment methods:

  • BPOINT (Please note your BPOINT receipt number on your application form)
  • Cheque
  • In person via Cash / EFTPOS at our reception

The prescribed fees are current from 31 August 2020.

Renewals are charged at the same rate as new applications.

Applications for blue cards or exemption cards

If you have applied for a blue card as a paid/job seeker or business operator you will need to pay the prescribed fee.

Renewals are charged at the same rate as new applications. Generally, payments are non-refundable.

You do not have to pay for your blue card application if you are:

  • a volunteer (who does not also do paid work with children)
  • a trainee student
  • a business operator who is not operating for profit
  • applying for an exemption card.

Changing to paid work

If you are a volunteer or student card holder, and you start getting paid for your child-regulated  work, you will need to submit a volunteer to paid application form and pay the prescribed fee.

If you are a volunteer or student card holder, and you start operating a child regulated business, you will need to submit a volunteer to business transfer form and pay the prescribed fee.

Replacement cards

You need to pay for a replacement blue/exemption card if it is lost or stolen.

If you don’t receive your blue/exemption card because you changed your contact details after applying and didn’t notify us, you will need to pay this fee.

A replacement fee will not be required if there has been an error by Blue Card Services.

Eligibility declaration

If you submit an eligibility declaration to check if you are eligible to apply for a blue card, you need to pay the prescribed fee.

Negative notice cancellation

If you have been given a negative notice, after 2 years you can apply to cancel the notice. In this case, you need to pay the prescribed fee. However, this does not mean that we will automatically overturn our original decision.

You need to submit an application to cancel a negative notice.
