Timeframe and fees
The APVMA will assess all applications in accordance with the APVMA legislation in a timely and efficient manner. There is no statutory timeframe for us to assess an application for an export certificate. However, for efficiency, the APVMA has an internal policy by which we endeavour to process certificate applications within 20 working days.
The fees for certificates are prescribed in the APVMA’s regulations. The standard fee is set at $125, with a further $105 payable if technical or scientific assessment is needed.
If you apply for subsequent certificates on the same day as the original application, you do not have to pay an additional fee for the subsequent certificates if they are the same in all respects, except for the addressee, the destination country or the foreign regulatory agency, to the original.
If you require the APVMA to take a certificate to the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) to perform a consular act in relation to the certificate, the following further fees apply:
- for signing and affixing a seal to the certificate: $80 per certificate
- for preparing and issuing an apostille certificate for the export certificate: $80 per certificate.
The additional fee for DFAT services applies to each application even if several similar applications are received on the same day.
