    • How long does a police check in Victoria last?

      A police check in Victoria is a ‘point-in-time’ check and is current as of the date of issue. A police check has no formal period of validity. However, many employers and organisations only accept a police check that has been issued in the past 12 months.

    • What is the cost of a national police check in Victoria?

      A national police check in Victoria costs $54.90 including GST.

    • How long does a national police check in Victoria take?

      Here at CVCheck, we’re connected directly to national databases. This means we will likely process your national police check ordered online in Victoria within 1 business day.

      However, approximately 30% of all national police checks ordered within Australia are referred for manual processing, whether you live in Melbourne or another city. If this occurs, the result may take from 1 – 15 business days to be returned.

      Processing of police checks in Victoria can take longer if the applicant shares similar details with other individuals recorded in police databases, particularly if they have a common name. It is therefore always recommended that applicants order their national police check at least 2 weeks before the certificate is required, such as for employment.

    • What is the difference between a national police check in Victoria and a criminal history check?

      Other than the issuing organisation’s branding and logo that may appear on the certificate, there is no difference between a national police check in Victoria and a criminal history check. Since July 2018, the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC), the government body that regulates police checks, formally applied the title of Nationally Coordinated Criminal History Check (NCCHC) to all police checks in Australia.
