Forms & templates

For an application to be considered validly made, and processing to begin, NOPTA requires:

  • the application to be accompanied by any legislatively prescribed documents/information and submitted within any prescribed timeframes
  • a correctly executed application form to be lodged
  • the fee to be paid (if an application fee is required).

Please note: The NEATS industry portal cannot be used at this stage for online applications. Acreage release (work-bid exploration permits and cash-bid exploration permits) are to be submitted in the approved form as outlined in the relevant Gazette Notice.

Email attachments cannot exceed 10MB in size. Where attachments are larger than 10MB NOPTA also uses a single service platform for its secure file transfer to allow clients to send large files securely to NOPTA. Please email for any further assistance with this activity.
