A Victorian magistrate accused of sex offences has been granted permission to go overseas on holiday.

Earlier this year, 55-year-old Simon Cooper was stood down from his court duties.

He was charged with 6 counts of attempted rape and 6 counts of indecent assault, relating to two complaints dating back to 1984.

A magistrate has granted changes to Cooper's bail conditions and the return of his passport, allowing him to go overseas for seven weeks.

Cooper will have to provide a $25,000 deposit and his brother has also provided a $100,000 surety.
