Escort licences

Operating an escort agency

Escort agency operators and managers in the Northern Territory must comply with licence conditions, including those relating to:

  • safe sexual practices
  • sex worker employment
  • financial records.

Sex worker registration

You must apply for a sex worker certificate for each sex worker in your agency. It is your responsibility as an escort agency licence holder to apply for sex worker certificates.

Escort agency restrictions

Brothels are illegal in the NT. This means sex workers can only provide sexual services in a hotel room.

Arrangements to provide sexual services must be made in a location other than the hotel.

Soliciting sexual services in public

Sex workers cannot solicit or accost anyone in a public place.
