How to Send Police Checks "Invites"

This article provides instructions on submitting 'invited checks'. An 'invited check' is where you will invite your applicant to complete their own police check by sending them a link via email.

To start the police check process, you will need to send an email 'invitation' to your applicant. This email will then prompt the applicant to register an account with InterCheck or login to their existing account.

For 'invited checks' the applicant will complete the application form themselves and upload their identity documents. If more information is required to process the application, InterCheck will contact the applicant directly to advise what additional information is required.
