Non-Tiwi Resident Permit

Non-Tiwi Resident Permits are issued to the partners, family members or close associates of Tiwi people. These permits allow non-Tiwi residents to reside on the Tiwi Islands for more than three months. The Tiwi Land Council requires a minimum of 30 working days to process permit applications. Please keep your permit safe; it must be able to be easily produced on request.
