Write to Us

The Department encourages online submissions, particularly during times when mobility may be impacted by COVID-19 restrictions.

Can't make a submission online? You can still send a physical copy of your submission to us by post or hand deliver it to one of the Department's offices. If you want your personal information to be withheld before publication, please clarify this at the top of your cover letter and do not include personal details in your submission.

Please be aware that if you choose to send a paper-based submission and it is not addressed to the nominated contact person / team, the submission will not be received by the Department and will instead be returned to sender.

Your submission must include:

Your name and address, at the top of the letter only (or in a separate cover letter if you want your personal details to be withheld from publication);
The name of the application and the application number;
A statement on whether you support or object to the proposal;
