To complete your application you will need

  • information about your full legal name and any names you may have, including previous names, maiden name, names you have legally changed, aliases and informal names (like nicknames)
  • your current address and 10 years' of address history
  • If you are verifying your identity online (100-point check), you will need an Australian driver's licence or permit, plus one of these:
    • Australian birth certificate or extract
    • Australian citizenship certificate

Apply for a check

Complete an application begun by an organisation

Once an organisation has started an online application on your behalf, the Screening Unit will send you an email so you can complete it.

If you don’t receive an email, contact the organisation to check they’ve started your application before you contact the Screening Unit.

To complete the application, you'll need to confirm your identity.

Sole-traders, contractors and self-employed people are considered businesses and need to register as an organisation before starting an application.
