Travel Agent Licence forms from NSW Fair Trading
Any individual or corporation (including general sales agents, wholesalers, consolidators, retail agents and some tour operators) who carries on business as a travel agent is required to be licensed.
You are carrying on business as a travel agent if you:
1) Sell tickets allowing another person to travel, or
2) Arrange approval for another person to travel sell, arrange or make available the right for another person to travel to a place and be accommodated at that place
3) Purchase for the purpose of reselling the right of passage on a conveyance.
Note: If you act as a tour operator rather than as an agent, you may need to apply to the Department of Transport to be an 'accredited operator'.
Employees of licensed agents do not have to hold a licence in their own right.
Travel Agent Licences are issued in the following classes:
1) International travel: arranging the sale of tickets, or arranging rights of passage, for international travel or international travel and accommodation.
2) Domestic travel: arranging the sale of tickets, or arranging rights of passage, for travel or travel and accommodation within Australia.
