With all the necessary identification documents at hand, you can apply online and submit your Application form at a post office all within a day.
For a list of documents you must have, click HERE.
Once your application is received, AusCheck will conduct an extensive background check that comprises of the following:
- a security assessment by the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO)
- a criminal history check by the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC)
- an immigration check (if required) by the Department, to confirm the right to work in Australia
- a document verification service (DVS) by the Department, to validate your Australian ID against the document issuing agency
This process can be lengthy and is beyond our control. To avoid, or minimise delays, we urge you to complete your application early and provide information as accurately as possible in one go.
Once your background check is validated by AusCheck, we will print your card and send it to your nearest post office within a week.
