(the Act) to the Premier of Victoria. Please note that the Department of
Premier and Cabinet processes FOI requests on behalf of the Premier.
Payment of application fee required to make an FOI request
Section 17(2A) of the Act requires that an application fee of $30.10
accompanies a request for access to documents. Payment can be via the FOI

The application fee may be waived in circumstances of hardship. If you
wish to seek waiver of the fee, you will need to provide evidence of
hardship, such as a current healthcare or pension card.

not be processed until payment or application for waiver is received and
