Coronavirus (COVID-19) update: need support with your fines?
Published on 27 May 2021
Victoria is moving towards reopening and restrictions to limit the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) have changed.
As part of the steps to reopening metropolitan Melbourne has now joined regional Victoria at the Third Step of eased restrictions on the roadmap toward COVID Normal. At this step there are no restrictions on reasons to leave home. Fitted face masks must be worn by all Victorians when they leave home unless you have a lawful exception.
For more information on the Coronavirus (COVID-19) roadmap to reopening, visit the roadmap for reopening website.
This is a difficult and uncertain time for may Victorians, and support is vital and available. We understand some customers are experiencing significant hardship because of coronavirus (COVID-19).
If you are experiencing financial hardship and having difficulty paying your fine, there are options to help you manage your fine debt. You can contact Fines Victoria to discuss your individual circumstances and options available to you.
If you believe you’ve been unfairly issued with a fine or that there is a valid reason why your fine should be withdrawn, you can request a review.
Please note that:
- Fines Victoria is currently implementing new ways of working in response to coronavirus (COVID-19).
- Counter services are currently unavailable; however all payments, submissions and enquiries can be made by phone on 9200 8111 or via this website.
Restrictions are in place to help slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and save lives. For more information visit the coronavirus.vic.gov.au website.
