Apply for Check

Not sure if you need a WWC Check?

Not everyone who works around children needs a WWC Check. Some exemptions apply. Answer the questions in 'Do I need a Check?' to decide if you need a Check.

If you are a minister of religion, please go to Who needs a Check? for details on the special requirements regarding your work under the Working with Children Act 2005 (the Act).

We are making it easier to apply...

If you choose to apply now you must lodge your application by Friday 2 December 2016. After this date, participating Australia Post outlets will only be accepting documentation for the new application process.

What do you want to do?

Please return to 'Apply for a Check' after 5 December to complete an application. Otherwise, select 'Apply now, and lodge by 2 December' to proceed.
