If you want to take advantage of the Queensland Government’s Tradies in Paradise initiative and help flood-affected areas recover, make sure you know how to become licensed in Queensland.  
If you’re already licensed interstate, you may be eligible to apply for a licence under mutual recognition.  
There are some special rules to consider: 

  • We may only issue a licence equivalent to the one you have. 
  • You need an active interstate licence to qualify for mutual recognition. 
  • If you have a condition or restriction on your interstate licence, the same will be imposed on your Queensland licence.  

For more information 

Visit our mutual recognition page so you can start working in paradise sooner.
