Accuracy is important
Remember to enter your details exactly as they appear on your ID documents. If your information is incorrect, Australia Post staff will not accept your form and your check may be invalid.
Nearly 80% of checks return within 15 minutes after submission at an Australia Post retail outlet.
20-30% of checks require investigation by police services, which can take 20 business days to return.
If your check is for employment purposes, Fit2work recommends submitting before you start looking for work to avoid delays starting your new job!
Employers can verify your check online by clicking the Verify link in the menu.
Hard copy certificates
