Using our application templates will help you to prepare and submit a quality application.
We request that you use our forms and templates so you can give us all the information we need to assess your application. This will help us assess your application more quickly.
The OIO will not consider changes to the nature of the application or investment plan or new benefit claims made during the assessment process. It is important that your application and investment plan contain your best submissions, as changes of this nature will require a new application.
We welcome your feedback about how the templates are working for you, and any suggestions you have for improvements.
The table below shows which template or form to use depending on your type of application. There is one template or form for some applications and template packs for others.
If a Vendor Information Form is required, it must be completed by the vendor rather than the applicant and be provided by them at the same time as your application. We recommend that you liaise closely with the vendor to ensure that this occurs. Please note that we are unlikely to start our quality assurance process until we have received the vendor information form.
We’ve updated the forms to reflect the recent amendments to the Overseas Investment Act 2005. They’ve also had a refresh of the way they look and they reflect some small improvements to the way we operate.
The templates below are only for applications for consent, variation or exemption. To notify us of a call-in transaction under the emergency notification regime, please use the Notification of call-in transaction webform.
