Refund and Cancellation Policy

When you apply for a service provided by the Ministry of the Attorney General and Legal Affairs (AGLA), the fee you pay may cover the cost of the:

  • Registration or renewal fee
  • Assessment or processing fee
  • Postage

Mostly, these fees are non-refundable.

For example, if the Registrar or authorised officer of AGLA refuses or closes an application, there will be no refund. The application fee will not be refunded because an assessment has already been completed and the application was denied.

 Apply for a refund of a payment

A customer may be entitled to dispute a transaction and receive a refund in limited circumstances such as: –

  • The product purchased was not received;
  • Duplicate processing of the transaction occurred; or
  • Suspected fraud.

If you believe you are entitled to a refund, submit an application form for a refund, giving a detailed explanation of your reasons and/or circumstances. All requests for refunds must be accompanied by a valid acknowledgement of payment invoice and/or official receipt. An acknowledgement of payment invoice is issued upon payment of funds by the customer. Once this payment is processed, an official receipt will be issued to the customer.

Any outstanding refunds will be issued to the card used to pay the fees. If AGLA is unable for any reason to refund the payment to the card, a cheque will be issued to the cardholder. You will not receive a refund if we learn that you have misrepresented yourself (given false information or left out important details).
