Supporting documents for gaming employee licence applications
When applying for a licence to work in Queensland's gaming industry, you'll need to submit supporting documents with your application.
The Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation (OLGR) can't assess your application until we've received all supporting documents, verified your identity and that you have paid your application fee.

How to submit supporting documents with online applications
You can upload your supporting documents as you complete your online application through the LGFT online portal. Choose the liquor or gaming individual (new or renewal) application form and select 'Continue'.
The maximum upload size for all documents combined is 19MG and file types are limited to PDG, JPG, GIF, PNG, or BMP formats.
Make sure your name (or online reference number, if you have one) is clearly marked on each supporting document.
If you can't upload everything now, you can save your application and return to it later (within 72 hours) to upload any outstanding documents.
Once you submit the application, you can't upload further documents. Instead, you'll have to email them to: OLGRLicensing@justice.qld.gov.au. You must ensure your name and online reference number are clearly marked on all documentation.
