Application for a brothel licence in Queensland

All brothels in Queensland must be licensed

Under the Prostitution Act 1999 (the Act), you must have a licence to operate a brothel in Queensland.

Each person involved in operating the brothel must have their own licence. A brothel licence is issued to the person, just like a driver licence. It can’t be used by another person or transferred to another person.

Unlicensed brothel operators can be fined or go to jail.

The Authority issues licences to eligible applicants found to be a suitable person. If you are granted a licence, you must:

  • have already paid the fee
  • comply with the Prostitution Act, Prostitution Regulation and conditions of the licence
    apply to renew the licence every three years if you want to continue to operate the brothel.
  • If you are not issued a licence by the Authority, you can ask for a review of the decision in the Supreme Court. We recommend you contact a legal representative about your options.
