You can pay a higher fee, currently $527, to increase the likelihood of a decision being made about your application within 30 days of it being accepted by Licensing NT.
However, paying the higher fee does not guarantee that a decision will made in that timeframe.
For some applications, such as new licences or authorities, and major event applications, it is not possible for a decision to be made within 30 days. This is because of advertising and other requirements.
