Common Questions:

I've applied for a Police Check, but I haven't received my certificate yet. Can I upload the document later? No, you will not be able to proceed to the next step without uploading your Police Check.

I don’t have a Police Check. What should I do? If you don’t have a Police Check, check here to get one. Unfortunately, we will not be able to approve you to the next step without a valid Police Check.

I received an email from TidyMe saying my Police Check is not valid. Why? All Police Checks are valid for 12 months, so please double check the date your certificate was issued so we can approve you for the next step! Check here to see which documents are accepted.

I’ve just received my Police Check. What should I do? That’s great news! Please log in and re-upload your certificate so we can approve you for the next step!
