DIA Update - Upcoming changes to Gambling Licensing

8 October 2020

The Department of Internal Affairs emailed licence holders in early September to let you know about some internal system changes they will be making in early November.

This update is to confirm that from Monday 2 November until Tuesday 10 November 2020 inclusive (7 working days) the DIA will be unable to issue new licences / COAs or amendments, including for electronic gambling equipment changes. 

While there will be a slight delay in processing during this period they anticipate that there will not be a significant impact on their processing times and that they will still be in a position to meet the stated turnaround times for applications.

If you have any amendments to be made in late October or early November, you should get these in by Monday 26 October to allow for these to be processed by the end of October.

If you have any queries in relation to this update, please contact gambling@dia.govt.nz.
