You are automatically ineligible to be approved or act as a brothel manager if: •you are under 18 years of age; or •you are insolvent under administration (bankrupt); or •within the last 5 years you have had a sex work service provider's licence or equivalent cancelled in Victoria; or •you are a represented person under the Guardianship and Administration Act 1986 (where a guardian or administrator has been appointed). You may also be ineligible if within the last 5 years, either as an individual or as a director or secretary of a company, or as an associate of a person or company, you have been convicted or found guilty of a disqualifying offence. For certain types of offences you can still apply for, and may be granted, approval. Based on the result of background checks, you may need to provide further information. If this is the case, the BLA will write to you.
