Registering as an NRS user is quick, easy, free and you only need to do it once.
User registration will help the NRS deliver a better service.
To register, you need to complete a form and provide a copy of a support document that has your name and address on it.
Different ways to register
There are lots of different ways you can register, including:
From the NRS call pages—for users of NRS Chat and NRS Captions.
You can download a registration form online, complete it, and post with a copy of your support document to:
National Relay Service
PO Box 691
Ballarat VIC 3353
The NRS Helpdesk can also post the form to you if needed.
- By email:
Download and print the registration form, complete it, then scan and email this along with your support document to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What happens if I don't register by 20 April 2021?
You can still register at any time after 20 April 2021.
But if you're not registered by the 20 April you will not be able to make or receive calls through the NRS except for calls to emergency services, without seeking assistance from the NRS Helpdesk.
Registration can take up to two business days to process.
If you register before 20 April 2021 you will avoid any interruption to your use of the NRS.
