Coronavirus (COVID-19) update: need support with your fines?
Published on Oct 22, 2020
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 moved to the Second Step toward COVID Normal on 28 September. At this step, there is no longer a curfew in metropolitan Melbourne. Regional Victoria has reached the Third Step of eased restrictions. Unless you have a lawful exception, fitted face masks must be worn by all Victorians when they leave home.

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If you believe you’ve been unfairly issued with a fine or that there is a valid reason why your fine should be withdrawn, you can request a review.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.Return to the top
