A police check in QLD is a moment-in-time check, which means it doesn’t have a formal period of validity. The check certificate is current as of the date of issue. A large number of employers in QLD will only accept a police clearance if it has been issued in the past 12 months.

A police check in Queensland costs $41.50 including GST.

In QLD, most police checks are processed, and the results are returned, within 1 business day.

Around 30% of the checks ordered within Australia are referred for manual processing. When this happens, the result may take from 1 – 15, and in some instances more, business days to be returned.

The process of completing police check in QLD may take longer if the applicant shares similar details with other individuals listed in police databases, particularly if they have a common first and last name. Cited recommends that all applicants order their police check in QLD at least 2 weeks before the certificate is required.

Apart from the issuing organisation’s logo or branding that may appear on the police check certificate, there is no difference between a police check in QLD and a criminal history check. From 2018, the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC) officially applied the title of Nationally Coordinated Criminal History Check (NCCHC) to police checks and clearances in Australia.

Police clearances in QLD are also referred to as:

  • National Police Check (NPC)
  • National Police History Check (NPHC)
  • National Criminal History Check (NCHC)
  • National Criminal Record Check (NCRC)
