Application Forms

Most of the AAPA’s services can be accessed using the following three application forms, which can be downloaded from the links above. 

Please be advised that fees and charges have changed as of 1 July 2013 and these changes are reflected in the Northern Territory Aboriginal Sacred Sites Regulations. The table below shows the amended costs to application and certificate fees.
It should also be noted that according to the Revenue Units Act 2009 “…the amount that is obtained for the fee or charge is not a multiple of $1, the amount is to be rounded down to the nearest $1.” For example, the fee is stated as 57 revenue units and the value of revenue unit is $1.07, the cost will be $60.00 (57 x $1.07 = $60.99, rounded down to $60.00).


•    People proposing to use or develop land or sea areas may apply to the AAPA for an Authority Certificate using the Authority Certificate application form.

•    Custodians and others who wish to register a sacred site may make a request to the AAPA using the Site Registration application form
      Please note there are no charges for this request.

•    People who wish to inspect either the Register of Sacred Sites or the Register of Authority Certificates may apply to the AAPA using the Request for Information from Records application form.
