All apparatus licence processing will be suspended for two weeks from Monday 11 May to Tuesday 26 May, the Australian Communications Authority (ACMA) has advised in correspondence to the WIA. This affects Amateur licences, as they are issued under the apparatus licensing system. If your licence is due for renewal over those two weeks, you need to get in early.

The ACMA communique further advised that, “If you think your licence will be due for renewal during this period, make sure you finalise payment before the shutdown.”

In practical terms, it means that, should you want to renew your licence via electronic funds transfer (EFT), the cut-off is on 4 May, a week earlier than the start of the suspension. The cut-off for payment via the online payment gateway is Friday 8 May, the ACMA advised.
