Where is my police check ?

70% of Australian checks are returned within the hour but some are delayed...


Last Update a year ago

On average, 70% of all National Criminal History Check applications are processed within 1 hour of receiving your application.

In the remaining cases, checks are processed within 10 business days.

This beyond the control of Worker Checks – further investigation is required by the state authorities.

This in no way means that there is a problem with the check outcome – it is just a consequence of the additional due diligence required.

Please ensure you allow yourself adequate time to receive your police check just in case your application requires manual investigation.

You will be advised via email updates in relation to the status of your application.
