Need help with your application?

If you are having trouble signing up, using the online application form, or with any aspect of the application process you will find answers to some frequently asked questions below

    Signing up

    Why do I have to sign up?

    You need to sign up, in order to establish your JP web account, that you will need during your term of appointment

    Once you are appointed as a JP, your JP web account will allow you to view and manage all the important details about your appointment online. You will also be able to receive important updates about your appointment, and apply for a further term of appointment.

    I have signed up but did not receive an email from you

    It may take up to 24 hours to receive your email.

    Please check the spam or junk mail folders in your email program to see if the email is there.

    If you have not received the email after 24 hours, you will need to contact us.

    I received my email, but the link doesn't work

    Depending on your email program or settings, the link in the email may not actually be active. If that happens, try copying and pasting the link into the address bar on your internet browser.

    Please note, as a security measure the unique link that you receive in the email, only remains valid for 48 hours. After 48 hours the link will not work and you will need to contact us to reactivate it.

    I've set my password and secret questions, now what?

    After you have set your password and established your secret questions, the system redirects you to the JP Online login page, and you should now log in, using your email, and the new password you just established.


    If you need to return to the JP online login page, it is located at


    Online application form

    Where do I access the online application form?

    You can save and return to your application at any time. If you log out of your JP web account, you will need to log back in at

    What happens if I leave out some required information?

    You will not be able to register your application until you have answered all the mandatory questions, on each tab in the online form. The system will advise you if any information is incomplete, and tell you which questions on which tabs require further attention.

    Nomination form

    What do I need to do with the nomination form?

    After you have printed the nomination form, you need to:

    1. Attach certified copies of the documents specified in Part A of the nomination form. The documents specified in Part A are based on your answers throughout the online form.

    2. Complete the statutory declaration at Part C. You will need a JP or solicitor to witness your signature.

    3. Ask a NSW MP to nominate you for appointment. The NSW MP will send your papers to the Department after nominating you.

    4. Applicants seeking MP nomination must print their application form and take it, with all original supporting documents, to the MP's office: emailed application forms and copied supporting documents (not originals) sent to an MP's office cannot be considered for nomination as originals of each are required by the nominating MP.

    PLEASE NOTE - Current processing time for new applications is a minimum of twelve weeks.

    What if I don't have access to a printer?

    Once you have registered your application, you can return to print the nomination form at anytime. So even if you don't have access to a printer immediately, you can log back into your JP web account at, and the form will be available for you to print later.

    How do I print my application at a later time?

    Once you have logged in, select 'My application for appointment'



    Then select 'Print application'
