Welcome to the Territory incentives


The ‘Welcome to the Territory’ incentives are an initiative of the Northern Territory Government, to boost and retain the Territory’s population and to help Territory businesses attract workers into hard to fill jobs.

$19 million over seven years has been committed to attract around 2600 people to the Territory from interstate and retain them for at least five years.

  4. submit your stage 2 application and, if approved

If you wish to leave a partially completed application, press 'save' and log out. When you log back in and click on the 'My Submissions' link at the top of the screen, you will find a list of any applications you have started or submitted. You can reopen your draft application and start where you left off.

You will find a Review and Submit button at the bottom of the Navigation Panel. You need to review your application before you can submit it.

Once you have reviewed your application you can submit it by clicking on 'Submit' at the top of the screen or on the navigation panel. You will not be able to submit your application until all the compulsory questions are completed.

Once you have submitted your application, no further editing or uploading of support materials is possible.

When you submit your application, you will receive an automated confirmation email with a copy of your submitted application attached. This will be sent to the email you used to register.

If you do not receive a confirmation of submission email then you should presume that your submission has NOT been submitted.


You may need to upload/submit attachments to support your application. This is very simple, but requires you to have the documents saved on your computer, or on a storage device.

You need to allow enough time for each file to upload before trying to attach another file. Files can be up to 25MB each; however, we do recommend trying to keep files to a maximum of 5MB – the larger the file, the longer the upload time.


A number of people can work on an application using the same log in details as long as only one person is working at a time. Ensure you save as you go.
