Processing the application and issuing the permit

This tracking number will also allow you to follow each step in the processing of your application. When the permit is issued, you will receive an email notifying you. 


Processing time 

The processing time for issuing a permit online is the same as for an application made at our offices. You must allow one to four weeks.

An incomplete permit application could lead to further delays.
