A police check in VIC is a moment-in-time check, which means there is no formal period of validity. The check certificate is only current as of the date of issue. A large number of employers in VIC will only accept a police clearance if it has been issued in the past 12 months.

A police check in Victoria costs $41.50 including GST.

In VIC, 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 VIC 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 VIC 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 VIC 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 checks in VIC are also referred to as:

  • National Police Check (NPC)
  • National Police History Check (NPHC)

* All turnaround times are estimated working times for Australian checks and are provided as a guide only. Turnaround times are based on our experience of the time taken for the majority of these checks to be delivered. However, Cited is reliant on third parties for supply of information, and in some cases those third parties may take longer to supply that information. Accordingly, Cited does not give any time guarantees for any checks or packages. It is Cited’s policy and practice to keep you informed as much as possible if there are any unusual delays.
