The new Garda vetting process with Early Childhood Ireland is outlined below.
Please remember to keep the NVB1 vetting invitation, the copy of photo identification and the copy of proof of address in the employee file. You can add the completed Garda vetting to the file when it comes through.
Eighty per cent of Garda Vetting applications take 7 – 10 working days from when the applicant completes the link sent to them by the National Vetting Bureau. Twenty per cent of applications take longer due to further checks by various agencies.
When entering the applicants’ information into the online vetting form, please ensure that the email address and date of birth are correct as the applicant won’t be able to access and complete the link from the National Vetting Bureau if they are wrong.
