We also follow up to ensure that the application is receiving processing, and therefore try to avoid any processing delays.
The normal processing time by the AFP is approximately 15 working days from receipt of your application. However as the AFP may consult with external agencies or other state authorities, processing in some circumstances, may take longer than usual. If the applicant has any prior criminal offenses, it is likely that there may be a delay in processing times. The certificate issued by the Australian Federal Police (AFP) is usually acceptable for most uses. The AFP certificate may disclose details of any offenses previously committed by the applicant and details of the sentences imposed. It may also disclose any other names that the applicant has been previously known by.
If you do require a police check for work purposes, you should check with your employer if you require a certificate issued by the Australian Federal Police or your State Police before proceeding with this service.
If you require your State Police to issue your certificate then we recommend that you contact your local Police Station or Australia Post office for assistance.
