After your application is lodged at the Post Office, it will be submitted to AusCheck for background checking.
AusCheck coordinates the MSIC background checks which comprise:
- a security assessment by the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO).
- a criminal history check by Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission.
- an immigration check by the Department of Home Affairs
Once AusCheck completes these, a notification is sent to 1-Stop with the decision. If the decision is eligible, your application is processed further.
