Learn how to apply for approval to work as a brothel manager in Victoria, including the eligibility criteria and fees that apply. Find out how to update your details, renew your approval, or apply for permission to work as a brothel manager while insolvent.

In this section:


A brothel must be supervised personally by the licensee or by an approved manager when open for business. You can only manage a brothel if your application has been approved by the Business Licensing Authority.

Licensees must be satisfied that the manager can manage the business in their absence. Licensees are responsible if their approved manager breaches the Sex Work Act 1994 or Sex Work Regulations 2016.
