Guidelines for seeking an exemption from the registration application fee

Marriage Celebrants Program

The Regulations allow for an exemption from the application fee where

  • the applicant’s principal residential address is in a remote area, and
  • there is no more than one marriage celebrant whose principal residential address is in that remote area and has the same postcode as the applicant’s residential address.

This is the only circumstance in which an exemption to the registration application fee can be granted under the legislation.
