Travel Permits for Fire Preparedness

On display until 01 March 2022, 05:00 PM

The Victorian Government has approved a travel exemption for non Indigo Shire residents to travel to their homes in the Shire to undertake essential summer bushfire preparedness work.

A permit scheme, similar to that which was run in 2020, has now been approved. This will allow an exemption to the current Chief Health Officer (CHO) directions for some Victorians to travel beyond their existing limits for the purposes of fire preparedness activities. 


  • Permit applications will open on Wednesday 6 October 2021.
  • Permit holders can then commence travel from Wednesday 11 October 2021.
If you can engage a local contractor to undertake the works, you do not need to lodge a permit application.
