Welcome to
Australia Post Police Checks 

A National Police Check certificate costs $49.90, and only $29.90 if you're applying for a volunteer position.
This price includes electronic delivery of your certificate.

If you need a physical copy of your certificate, the cost will be an additional $10. This includes delivery via Registered Post. See a sample of the hard copy certificate. Remember that with our service, potential employers can verify your certificate online, so you may not need a physical copy - but check with them first.
