How long will it take to process my National Police Background Check?

For most applications, about 80% the results are returned within 24 - 48 hours from the day the application is received. However, some applications can be flagged as requiring further review and may take up to 10 - 12 business days. We aim to stay within these general timeframes, however, there are some circumstances beyond our control where applications may take longer to process. We can only lodge your application once we have received all required documents (signed application/consent form and 100 points of identification, certified as true copies).
