Why would I need an AFP check?

AFP checks are usually required for Australian Federal Government purposes such as:

  • if you’re seeking employment with the Commonwealth Government
  • checks required under Commonwealth legislation
  • for Australian immigration requirements
  • where an applicant is residing overseas
  • overseas employment requirements
  • overseas travel visa applications
  • if you live or work in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT), Jervis Bay or external Commonwealth Territories.
