Information Access application

Access applications under the Right to Information Act 2009 and Information Privacy Act 2009

The Right to Information Act 2009 (the RTI Act) and the Information Privacy Act 2009 (the IP Act) give a right of access to information held by government, unless, on balance it would be contrary to the public interest to release the information.

Before making a formal application, you should contact the relevant agency as information may be already available online, for purchase or by request.  Queensland Government agencies release information administratively and proactively wherever possible.

However, if you do wish to make a formal application, you can apply online for access under the RTI Act or IP Act to information held by Queensland Government departments and Ministers.

Alternatively, you can download the application form and submit your application via post, fax or email or in person. The details of the relevant agency which you’re applying from our contacts page as these are not included on the application form.

Credit card details will not be accepted for payment of the application fee via email, facsimile or telephone. Credit card payments will only be accepted in hard copy via post or as part of an online application process.

You will need to submit your application this way if you wish to apply to agencies other than Queensland Government departments or Ministers. Download the application form (PDF, 191.2 KB).

It helps if you provide as much information as possible about the document you are seeking. If you know the title, subject matter, agency reference number, type of document or the date it was produced, please specify these details in your application.

View applicable fees and charges.

You can also apply to amend your personal information under the IP Act if you believe the information is inaccurate, incomplete, out of date or misleading.
