Introduction agents are no longer required to be licensed in Victoria. An introduction agent is a person or company in the business of offering an introduction, matchmaking or dating service that aims to match or provide individuals details for personal relationships or social outings.
Exceptions to the new arrangements for introduction agents apply if you fall into the category of a prohibited persons or corporation. In this instance you will need permission to operate.
As an introduction agent you will need to familiarise yourself with all your legal obligations under current legislation. If you fail to comply with these obligations, penalties may apply.
Publishers of advertisements who publish or make available details of persons who are seeking a personal or social relationship with one or more other persons do not act as introduction agencies. This means advertising in any newspaper, magazine, or similar document, television, or radio.
