Australian General Export Licences (AUSGELs)

 

Australian General Export Licences (AUSGELs) are broad permits for pre-approved activities. A single AUSGEL can permit you to supply goods to specific destinations and purposes for five years’ duration, or longer if required. You may also wish to apply for multiple AUSGELs, to accommodate a range of type of goods that you export - you can do this with a single application form. Once approved, you can export any of the listed goods, software and/or technologies to any of the approved destinations, provided it matches the approved purpose of export listed in the AUSGEL.

It is important to note that we will only issue AUSGELs to applicants who are likely to use the licence for its intended purpose, and to comply with the conditions stated on the licence. The key questions we will consider are:

  • Are you planning on exporting multiple shipments of goods over more than one year?
  • Will all of those shipments be made to countries covered by an AUSGEL?

AUSGELs will be issued for the following purposes:

  • AUSGEL 1
    Licence for the Export of Certain Dual-Use Goods to Specified Destinations
    Licence for the Supply of Certain DSGL Software and Technology to Specified Destinations
  • AUSGEL 2
    Licence for the Export of Certain Dual-Use Goods to Specified Destinations for Repair or Return
  • AUSGEL 3
    Licence for the Export of Certain Military Goods to Specified Destinations for Repair or Return
  • AUSGEL 4
    Licence for the Export of Certain Military Goods to Members of the Federal, State or Territory Police, Australian Public Service, Australian Defence Force and Australian Intelligence Community.
  • AUSGEL 5
    Licence for the Export of Certain Dual-Use Goods to Members of the Federal, State or Territory Police, Australian Public Service, Australian Defence Force and Australian Intelligence Community.

You will find complete details about AUSGELs, the application process and what each class of Licence covers on the AUSGEL general information page.
