Permits Online: What Happens After You Submit

After you've submitted your application package, including all required documents, here is what happens next:

  • We assign the application to a processing specialist for a detailed review. 
  • We review the application package for completeness and accuracy and determine the eligibility of the applicant.
  • We may notify you electronically that we'll have to correct application errors or omissions.
  • If the application package is approved, we will send you notification by email that your application is approved.
  • You may then log in and view or print your approval documents including your TTB permit, registration, or notice.

How long will it take?  Check our Permit Processing Times page to get an idea.
