    Dealing with the department who issue licenses and every other thing to do with reptiles will teach/condition you how to be patient.

    After 3 weeks I got sick of waiting so I emailed them, told them I needed my application to be processed as the reptile breeder wouldn't hold the animal for me any longer, and within a few hours I had my licence number emailed to me, paperwork on the otherhand showed up 2 weeks later!

    Just call them & ask them if it's been processed yet & if it has they will give you the number over the phone. If it hasn't been processed & you don't receive it within a fortnight then call them again:)

    I also applied for mine online, though i only did it a few days ago. what did you print out straight away? did they provide you with a licence number?!

    what is their number for the licence enquiries?

    A lot of the licensing staff only started back this week after the Christmas new year period, if you phone them and ask nicely they generally get it sorted out for you pretty quickly.

    To echo this and previous similar posts, while the whole system is a pain and understaffed, the individual staff are often very helpful if you get them on the phone. I few times I have had an import permit expedited, which was a great help.

    ..... But don't empathise w that lot too much Chris, they may turn you to the dark side! :D

    I'm in Perth so doesn't count for you just thought I'd add to all the heartbreak of people with the opposite!
    I went in to the DEC Herpetofauna Licensing reception blahblah.. Handed them the fee and the forms, he came back 3mins later with my lic. number written down on a post-it note and said the rest will be printed and posted before the end of the week.

    That's only because our herp community is MUCH smaller than yours and if there was a backlog it's cos someone has been on holiday too long ;p
