Apply for a fire permit

If you need to use fire in the open air during the Fire Danger Period or on a day of Total Fire Ban you may require a permit.

Victorians can now apply for a fire permit online at

If you conduct any activity using fire outside, you can now use a phone, tablet and laptop to:

  • Check if you need a fire permit.
  • Apply for a fire permit.
  • Notify authorities when you plan on using a permit, and
  • Register a burn-off when restrictions are not in place.

Go to the Fire Permits Victoria, create an account. From there, you can apply for multiple permits and check the progress of your application.

If you’re unable to apply online, you can still visit your regional office and apply in person - contact FRV to find out more.

Fire Permits Victoria will improve the way fire and rescue services manage fire risk across the state and help reduce unnecessary Triple Zero (000) call outs.

So, if you’re planning your next burn off, outdoor catering event or celebration using fireworks, Fire Permits Victoria should be your first stop to check, apply and notify.
